First, read the install section of the handbook.
Read the _entire_ thing.
Second, backup your Windows data.
Third, test your Windows backup to be sure it's good.
Then, download a boot floppy image and get started:

If you are not 100% sure that you've backed up your data, don't
start the install process.  It's very common for folks to destroy
their Windows partition if they're not familiar with the process.
