    Cannot boot to 10.04 after install.

    I have a laptop with Windows XP cleanly installed. I ran the installer for Ubuntu 10.04 from the disk, made a second partition and successfully installed Ubuntu, except the "boot loader installation failed."

    Naturally I can't boot to anything but Windows still. I'd like to boot to Ubuntu from the boot loader but I'm not sure what I'm doing. Do I modify the existing loader or install Grub2? I went looking for tutorials and they're filled with terminal stuff that I don't even know how to access from Windows.

    Thanks.
