A Live-CD (DVD) will, all that I know of, *always* over write an
existing install. That I know of anyway, They are a 'write this to the
disk' system. It has been a long time but I (me!) do not know of a
Live-CD that does disk partitioning. Maybe

Now you mentioned Windows. *If* you have Windows install you need to
'shrink' the Windows section and make a place for the Linux to be installed.

If you have Win 7 it has a disk partitioning program to do that
included. Else you will have to use something else.
