[clug] Installing an Android OS onto a PC

I have stumbled across:


which sounds as though it is now possible to download Amazon's Kindle 
Books without purchasing their gadget.

The flagged software-package is designed to be downloaded onto an Android 
phone that uses Android 1.6. 

I already own a cheap Android tablet (that uses Android 1.6), but have 
limited technical know-how.  The tablet's performance (in my hands) is 
temperamental; wherever possible, I prefer using my desktop computer (and 
a wired connection to the Internet).

Is there any documentation (that can be understood by a raw amateur) on 
installing an Android OS onto a spare partition of the computer?

All pointer will be gratefully received.
