I'm using the link you guys gave me to Wubi to install Ubuntu.

Is this something I can use for a dual boot?

Never used Wubi, I just boot off a Ubuntu live cd wipe the HD and just install Ubuntu as the only OS like a BAUS.

IIRC, WUBI is just a nicely packaged VM running ubuntu. If you want to dual boot, just use the standard Ubuntu installer to partition off a bit of free space. It'll handle the GRUB install which is smart enough to detect that you have a windows partition installed (just make sure you don't blow away the entire windows partition while you're installing. It's pretty clear though)

Interesting about WUBI. If ViperorMiata was a real man he would just install Gentoo. It will teach him all he needs to know about linux.

Lol. While I admire the dedication to making newbs learn, That would be like telling someone the best way to learn how to maintain their own car is to rebuild the engine.(You learn a lot for sure, but the likelihood of failure with 0 prior experience is pretty ------- high).
