    There are plenty of options when it comes to Linux. You have to choose which Linux distro is good for your taste. Ubuntu and Linux Mate are popular distributions. So choose one distro among them and follow the instructions below. In this case I am giving instruction for Ubuntu Linux.

    1. Download Linux DVD .ISO from ubuntu.com
    2. Burn the DVD image and verify if it's bootable.
    3. Now change the BIOS settings in your computer to boot from USB or DVD.
    4. Boot into the Ubuntu desktop session from DVD. Run the installer once the desktop shows up.
    5. Choose Dual boot install option.
    6. Let the installation proceed. And once completed boot by removing the DVD.
    7. During the boot you get the choice for either Linux or Mac or Windows. In case of Mac you'd have another official bootloader overwriting the Ubuntu's.

    This is the typical process of the installation. I suggest checking following resources.

    1. Pendrive Linux : pendrivelinux.com
