Personally, I prefer to take an entirely new hard drive.

But w/e.
1. In windows, defrag your hard drive with the defragment tool.
2. Shut down, put in Ubuntu cd.
3. When booted, choose to install (I think there's a shortcut on the desktop to install). When it prompts for where to install, create a new partition and resize your old windows one. (I don't know the details of it, but it was pretty easy for me).
4. The Grub menu allows you to boot into Ubuntu or Windows...

You didn't give much detail... Do you even have a CD?

When it ask to partition, choose manual. Choose which partition you want to format and install. Click on edit and choose /. Then select next.

He'd want to call it /
/root is the home directory for the super user.

/ = "root directory" though as in top directory.
