I have two questions:
Which one of these do you think would be the best Linux distro to use for someone completely new to linux? however i would prefer one that will teach me about computing as i will spend as much time as necessary to learn everything about my system.
Secondly, dual booting a linux distro, can i do this without having to re-install my windows os? or does this work for these distro's at all. I am using windows 7. If i have to reinstall stuff that is not a problem but no dual boot is.
Thanks in advance for your help.

If it comes down to a full format of my HDD would mean nothing to me. Anyone have any good programs for partioning though as i used the windows disc to do it the first time.
