Default n00b to Linux

Hey there, i am new to the Linux world and I am wanting to install Linux on my home pc, but I am also running XP pro and dont want to loose it. What would be a good version to use that I could run along side windows.
Thanx,
The Rob

In this case I'd recommend SuSE 10.0, Mandriva 2006 or Fedora Core 4. Their installers will help you to install Linux without losing your Windows installation.
