The Ubuntu live CD will allow you to do a side by side installation (dual boot), but I believe you need to have a separate drive or partition in order to maintain both OS.

Simply get the Installation CD, and once you insert it into the cd-drive, it will avail you with options, which are not so hard to follow ..

2 ways, installing using a virtual machine to host the ubuntu, or installation on the physical hard-disk by creating a partition, making sure that you do not overwrite the one windows is in.

Virtual machines would include VMWare Player and VirtualBox
