The easiest way I know is call the pool guys and set a date for them to do it!

Sorry I take pride in what I do with the help from the new friends that I have at this site, I always recomend the site an try to help who I can with my knowledge. It bring me pleasure to help my friends an neighbors with their projects that i have learned. Iam a racing fan that works in a pit crew that take pride in what I do, I rebuild engines I take great pride to hear it fire up after an overhaul.

There is no truely easy way, the hardest part is working the wrinkles out. Do you know if you have a overlap liner or beaded???

Yes I was just kidding. I helped replace a 21 foot liner TWICE!
No-one knew how hard it was until it was all over. The first time the owner (brother-in-law) decided he wanted it deeper in the middle so after removing old liner we dug out the middle. Then we put sand in to form the bottom. Put the liner in clamped the top with clothespins and began filling the pool. As it filled we tried our best to get the wrinkles out. Not too easy to do. Then the clothes pins started popping off. So we decided we would cut the liner and put the top rail back on. When the pool was about 3/4 full there was a strange sound! The liner was ripping out of the railings.
Long story short we got a new liner and help from a pool installer filled in the hole we had dug and redid the pool. It had to be filled completely before installing the top rail.
So I suggest you get a lot of advice ahead of time or hire an installer on his day off for help. It is cheaper to pay the helper than buy a second liner and pay for all that wasted water.
