There is many programs to help you partition your hard drive. I take it you would like to partition your hard drive and dual boot windows and linux?

Boot off the live CD, then use either fdisk, cfdisk, or gparted to modify the partition table. Ummm...which distro are you using? If it is your first time with linux, I suggest ubuntu, or debian. Both are good, but ubuntu is simpler for the first time user.
The vid link is broken.
please repond if you need more help.

OK. I have no idea what on earth that is. it is linux because of the kernel update thing. (it matches a recent linux kernel) but you will not get anything that looks like that out of the box. It looks like they have debian based, but with enlightenment installed with the gfx mod. Really, all that is is a gimmick. It gets very annoying after a few days (take vista as an example.) I still think you should start with ubuntu or debian.
