    Download Sidux .iso, burn it to CD as an "image" then change your boot order in your BIOS so that it boots from disc instead of your harddrive (to prevent Windows from booting up). Make sure your CD is inserted.

    Sidux boots up as a LiveCD, when you click the "install" icon on desktop the partition manager will help you create a linux partition on your last drive (E). If your harddrive is SATA (i presume it is) it will be /dev/sda(3) most probably on partition number 3.

    It will automatically create a swap on that partition as well.
