    you have to have a an empty or extra partition on your hard drive to install another OS without wiping out the Windows.
    if your laptop doesnt boot with the CD you made, then either your CD is corrupted and is not bootable or your laptop BIOS setup to boot from hard disk first, change the CMOS setting to boot from CD 1st then it will work.
    (some laptops have the option of hitting an F key like F10 to get the boot menu before reading the hard disk).
