You probably want to store this value in the post meta. Look up the
get_post_meta(), add_post_meta(), and update_post_meta() functions.

Now, as for creating the checkbox, you most likely want to look up one
of the dbx hooks (check out <http://adambrown.info/p/wp_hooks> and
<http://wphooks.flatearth.org/> for a list of hooks).
