Some program like MAC's Bootcamp?

Best method is to ...... Install Ubuntu, then STOP!!!!

Just kiddin' dude. Best is to have Vista on there 1st and let Ubuntu resize and make room for itself. There are workarounds to allow Vista to be put on later though, but i am not familiar with the method used.

Dont install Vista! Try installing, say, XP in VMware...

It's best to install Windows first and then Ubuntu after because Windows will screw up Ubuntu if you install it first, but Ubuntu won't screw up Windows if you install that first.

You can in either case pick to give Ubuntu more space though, so that's not a problem.
