Tools Dual Boot

Red Hat (http://www.redhat.com) makes this process a breeze, plus it's the best documented free distribution, unless you count Mac OS X, which is by far the best in that category (plus ease of use), but obviously isn't an Intel hardware option.

I personally like dual boot or dedicated systems better (because they're faster, more full featured and "pure"), but there are ways to use Linux without even having to repartition. It's recommended if you don't want to commit to the hassle of repartitioning / installing / configuring boot...
I believe even Redhat has the opttion to install onto a FAT partition. I believe in Windows, it just looks like a large file, but when you boot into it, it is mounted as a live filesystem!

Computer Red Hat

As far as I know, yes. I'm Darwin all the way, so I haven't looked extensively into Red Hat's offerings. I'm of the understanding that they have provided far and away the most complete documentation and set of installation/administration tools of any of the Linux distributions. By the way, on a humorous note: demonstrating the strength of his company's dedication to Liunx, Sun Microsystems' frontman Scott McNealy walked onto the state at a developers' conference in January wearing a penguin suit.
