After many failed attempts to get Ubuntu duel installed with Vista I decided to try another route. I made a new partition on my C: drive named F: I formatted it and downloaded Wubi 8.10 to it. I was able to install it and at start up I'm given the option of Vista boot or Ubuntu. Seemed fine but when I try Ubuntu I get this error:

Error 1: Filename must be either an absolute pathname or blocklist
press any Key to Continue

I think the path is something like: -set --root -ignore_floppy (I'm not sure about that, going by memory) /ubuntu/install/boot/vmlinuz

I thought I might have to change it by adding F:/ubuntu/etc....
but that then gives another error:

Error 15: File not found (something like that)

I can get to (Grub) as well
Any help getting around this? Thanks
