If you want to try Linux at its full potential then installing it alongside your current OS will do, kinda like Tri-boot or Quad-boot instead of just Dual-boot.

Anyways, I use VirtualBox(vBulletin) to occasionally check out other distros and they have never corrupted my partitions and hopefully never will. Normally when I use vBulletin, I just load the Linux .iso file in vBulletin so I don't need to burn them to a CD, give it a little less than half my current RAM and on average a virtual hard disk with about 5GB space.

So far, my experience with Linux in vBulletin has been slow as in the speed is just significantly faster than in LiveCD mode.
