This is pre-release software and is not stable.  It is not recommended to install it on your primary computer.  An ideal way to install this is using VirtualBox.  This will create a virtual machine on your existing Windows PC where you can install and use Windows 8.

Alternatively, you can dual boot your PC with both Windows 8 and Windows 7 or XP.  See this article on lifehacker.com for more info.
