If you are talking about using the "Wubi" installation program, then
it will just take some free space on your hard drive and create a
virtual partition (and won't affect your data whatsoever).  Its pretty
much no risk -- just about as much risk as using a live CD (and I
don't know how that could ever mess up anyone's system).  If you want
to uninstall it, you just remove it through the Add/Remove Programs in
the Windows Control Panel.
