You can run quite a few live CDs, some distros have been put together to use as a live CD. To install Linux within Windows, you can use the Wubi install (which I think is Ubuntu only), or you can install software such as VirtualBox and then install Linux on a 'virtual machine'. Otherwise you normally have to change the partition structure to allow you to install Linux to it's own partition.
If your machine supports booting from a USB pen drive then you can create more or less the equivalent of the live CD on a pen drive. This saves you burning a CD and also allows you to boot a system with no CD drive (things like netbooks). unetbootin allows you to make the live USB pen drive quite easily - you just need to be careful you select to install to the pen drive rather than your hard drive.
