Thanks,cornzey and lhamil64! Great read on that link! "When there is a will, there is a way" :-) I'm going to try it :-)
lhamil64, I have one harddisk, but partitioned into disk C and disk D, I guess in my case I can install Linux in D without further partition?
I will study Ubntu family. I need one that cost less CPU. I read an artical about "Damn Small Linux", but I think maybe it's better install a standard one...it's a chance to learn Linux, if things works wonderfully, I'd change to Linux permenently.
Currently, I am using ZoneAlarm Security Suit(virus/spy/firewall), After install Linux, will ZoneAlarm work on the Linux system? or should I install ZoneAlarm again for this Linux system?

I've never done it before but I'm pretty sure it's possible.
It shouldn't slow down your computer because when using Windows it will only be using disk C.
Take a look at the link below, it might give you some guidance.

Hope this helps,

1. Is this possible?
Nope, you'll only be able to run one Operating System at a time. A system reboot is the only way to do this (unless you running a virtual machine like VMWare or something).
2. If possible, how to swich between the 2 system easily without reboot PC?
Nope, only one Operating System at a time will be up, will run just like normal.
3. Will it greatly slow down PC?
No, AV will only apply to the OS you install it on. Matter of fact, unless you're using some third party application, Windows will not even be able to access the linux partitions.
4. Antivirus/Firewall will take care of both OS, or they protect only the disk which they are installed in?
