    Yes I agree with jinteik...especially if you are new in doing this...Virtual machine helps to install Ubuntu next your Host O.S. Can be easily managed and removed any time without messing your O.S. Here is a download link and some Details to virtual box https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

    Linux also does not care about c,d,e,f drive letters like Windows. Linux file systems like sda1, sda2, sda3, sda4 and so on. There must be 3 partitions to run Linux properly.... root, boot and swap. Rest partitions r depend on u. But for user works there is also need one more called home partition. U can name remain partitions as ur wish. If this Pc does not have valuable data but for safe take all of the backups of ur data and then play with ur computer.
