use the disk manager in windows 7 to reduce the size of your existing partition and the install linux. make sure you go in to the advanced disk options when installing the new OS and create a new partition in the empty space and not overwriting your windows install.

most current distro's will automaticly set up a boot menu for you so you can choose what OS to boot into at startup.
