How to dual boot setup for a pc

Hi,

I have a pc running windows xp pro. I want to try and install a Linux os as well. I have come across Ubuntu and like the look of it.

I have a 160GB hard drive. What do I need to do to setup a dual boot system so i can choose windows xp or Ubuntu when I boot up. Are there any pitfalls and is it easy to do.

Thanks

I have recently installed Xandros Linux on an older PC also running 98SE. By default it loads Linux OS but there is an option to load 98SE instead on boot up. When I installed Linux I took the option to keep 98SE as well. I would imagine your installation would give the same options.
