You could do either. The latter is more trouble-free.
If you happen to have an old, unused or underused 486 or better-class PC,
you might install Linux there, instead, leaving your Windows box alone,
and have a cheap LAN between them.

Or Libranet. Arguably others.
> I don't know the one [from] the other...!
Then pick one, see if you like it. If you're still feeling
adventuresome, pick another one. Keep going until either your curiosity
is satisfied or you fall madly in love with one. (You can get a jewel
box with about 8 or so distributions on CDs for low prices, mail-order.)
