I'm sure there's a way but not exactly sure how to go about it. If I were starting with windows already installed it would be easy since the ubuntu boot disk comes with the dual boot option but windows doesn't. Also, not sure how much partition space should be given to Vista. Basically I have no clue what I'm doing so any help would be great! Thanks!

EDIT: I'm running jaunty on a Dell Studio 17 right now if that makes any difference.

Hi TheNad,

you can create a new primary partition, format it as ntsc, then go ahead with the install. This may break your grub for booting ubuntu so follow this how to on how to recover after the install: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows
