Ralph is spot on about the partitioning issue. If your just playing with Linux then it really is not necessary to go through the sometimes painful process of partitioning your hard drive. Not necessary to get that complex. Ralph's suggestion about running Mint from a USB stick is also a good one. I prefer another way. I like Ubuntu which has an installation type/file called wubi.exe (windows installer). A search here will find it "Install Ubuntu with the Windows installer". It installs through Windows and very neatly creates kind of a mini partition, does a full install of Ubuntu, and sets up a dual boot menu choice. Works nicely and if you want to get rid of it you just uninstall through your Windows Control Panel. This is very quick, simple, and works just great for me.
