First of all, please don't post in all capitals - it's the equivalent of shouting.
Unless you are using a virtual machine inside Windows 7, Sabayon needs to be installed on it's own partition. It's best to shrink the Windows partition using Windows itself and then run the Sabayon DVD and select install on disc.

Sabayon will not install or format unless you tell it to. I think the best thing you can do is have a good look at this page
http://wiki.sabayonlinux.org/index.php?title=HOWTOs and especially the first 2 sections; Taking a Tour and Installation. That will give you the information you need to proceed. Best of luck.

The following sticky thread in the SL Forums may also be of help, as the basic principle for installing SL to dual boot with Windows 7 is the same as for Vista as far as I am aware: ?? Vista + Partitions Read Here ??
