i have a dual boot...well actually i have 3 partitions running 8.04, 8.10, and windows

i want to install a fresh copy of ubuntu without having to reinstall windows(i need it for somethings dang) i want to use an existing partition how can i do this?

options for install are full HD(not that one heh), guided use (free space) and manual(if this is the one how do you do it)

or is there another way?

This probably isn what you're looking for right now, but have you looked into usin VirtualBox to run Windows in? I use it for running XP for a couple of Win only apps that I can't get working through Wine, or can't get Linux replacements for.
