I have an ACER 160GB HD that already has Windows 7 installed. I also have the Ubuntu disc ready to go. I've never done this kind of thing before so I wondering if someone here can help me. I already have the BIOS settings adjusted and I met the system requirements. I just need a tutorial or instructions.

Moved from Win 7 to Linux forum.

This is one way of doing it: http://www.hackourlife.com/dual-boot-windows-7-and-ubuntu-10-10-maverick-meerkat/

Although I've done this several times without any issues, I recommend making sure to back up any important data.

Thanx bro. That was very helpful. I appreciate it. Ubuntu is pretty neat.
