To get Ubuntu, go here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download
You can download it or get a CD shipped to you for free. The page will
also help you to select the right version for your needs.
If you want to watch commercial DVDs and watch/listen to videos/music
that uses proprietary codecs, I would recommend to use the 32 bit
version, since this software usually is not available in 64 bit
versions. The speed difference to the 64 bit version is negligible.
You will want to use the Live CD for installation (not the "Alternate
CD"). First you should defragment your windows partition (from within
Windows) to make sure that all data is located at the start of the
partition. Then put the Live CD into your CD drive, restart the computer
and make sure that it boots from the CD. The Live CD boots into a
functional Ubuntu system, and you will see an icon to the desktop to
start installation. Ubuntu will offer you to resize your Windows
partition ans will set up a dual boot system. It will even migrate some
of your Windows data to Ubuntu.
