How to install ubuntu and use it with windows

Ubuntu installation is a bit different from windows and other operating systems. I have been using Windows from last 10 odd years but off late I realised the OS has become very slow and is unstable. It takes lot of time to start unlike ubuntu which starts  up very fast and has great UI ( User Interface ). Since the time I have installed ubuntu I am not disappointed as there are various supporting apps which makes sure theres nothing much you will miss on ubuntu unless you are a designer who have to use softawares like photoshop. So if you wish to have a feel of ubuntu OS install it in your drive ( 4GB is the requirement ) along with windows and you will love the fast stable OS.
