    So I was thinking about installing linux on my crappy dell to see if I like it. I know absolutely nothing about it except that I use linux on my ipod.

    Anyone care to steer me in the right direction?

    I have one question for now, I know dual booting is possible, but i was wondering if its a hassle and how is it done?

    first, make sure everything is backed up first. then, download the version you want, be it ubuntu, debian, mepis, suse, or othewise. to dual-boot, you need three partitions on your harddrive, one for windows or the first operating system, one for the linux system, and one for a swap partition. the boot loader that comes with the linux distro you choose will handle everything else
