Been there, done that, about 8 years ago.
It was quite tricky when the machine was brand new and unknown as you
might gather from the page.  However the fact that I havn't updated 
the page since 2001 is because since then all major distros I've tried
have "just worked"(tm).

As for dual boot setup I can't help having never booted Windows on the
machine even when it was brand new from the shop.  I'm sure plenty of
others can help.  Backup everything in sight before you start.
