Question about Computers & Internet
First you will need to partition the hard drive. This can be done from within Windows 7 using the Disk Management utility. You may access this by right clicking on "Computer" and going to manage. You will then click on disk management to the left in the navigation pane. From there you will see a listing of your hard disks and their existing partitions (if any). You now need to right click on the partition you would like to shrink in order to make space for your Linux install. The minimum recommended amount is 15GB, but if you have more to spare, I highly recommend utilizing it.
Once the partition is shrunk you will have some unallocated space that the Linux install can take advantage of. You now simply need to boot from your Linux install CD and choose this unallocated space as the install point.
There is a video and an article I will reference that should help as well.
