A few questions on having Windows and Linux on the same hard drive.?

I’m using Windows XP, and have decided to try out Ubuntu Linux. I plan to try the Live CD first, and later maybe install it.
I have a few questions:

1. I read somewhere that the ‘Live CD’ will not require any installation . Will this Live CD allow me to use Linux the same way as if it was installed in the computer?
2. I don’t know a lot about computers, can I still use Linux?
3. Any steps/precautions I should take before installing ubuntu (besides backing up necessary files)?
4. Any step by step guides on installing/uninstalling ubuntu (in case I get into trouble) ?

Ok I have a Linux Freespire CD and I need some help…?

I have this cd and i want to run the live version of it and it just won’t work it first of all says that I don’t have the correct software–pick from a list or go on the net to find out what software is needed so i pressed net and it wouldn’t open. Then also the live thing is a zipped file I don’t know what I’m supposed to do I open it with winzip and it brings up a window to extract it but it’s not like the normal windows I tried to extract it on my flashdrive which is 512 and it says insert disk 2 so i stopped it so I don’t know what to do does anyone have any suggestions?
