It's quite straight forward procedure, just follow instructions on installing an OS to Virtual PC.

But, I really do not recommend it. Virtual PC Integration components do not work with any other guest OS than XP, Vista and Seven. Instead download VirtualBox or VMWare Player virtualization software (both free) and install your Linux guests on one of those.
