Dual boot between Linux and which OS? Since you say you are new to
Linux in general maybe you want to dual boot with Windows. In that
case check the wiki [1].

Also, since Arch Linux puts a lot of responsibility in the hand of the
user and assumes he/she knows what he/she is doing, it might be a good
idea to try another distribution first (OpenSUSE, Ubuntu, etc). If you
find you like Linux then you should give Arch a try. You'll love it
and you will *learn a lot*.
