The easy way is to download an .iso file from say Ubuntu or Fedora. Then with the disk in the CD drive reboot your system. It will probably look at the CDRom first and then it will start to install the Linux operating system.
JUST REMEMBER that once it is installed you will have erased anything on the Hard drive.
You can download a Virtual Machine such as Virtual box and install it inside of Virtual box without affecting your current Operating system. That is what I currently do so that I am able to test the version of Linux.

How to run a guest operating system inside a host operating system without dual...


Install virtual box from : Download VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application. What does that mean? For one thing, it installs on your existing Intel or AMD-based computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. Secondly, it extends the capabilities of your existing computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time. So, for example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac, run Windows Server 2008 on your Linux server, run Linux on your Windows PC, and so on, all alongside your existing applications. You can install and run as many virtual machines as you like -- the only practical limits are disk space and memory.
