    Because you did not specify a drive or parameter, it defaulted to the current device. That may have just been the CD?

    Yeah that's what I thought, but I didn't know how to specify the drive. Either way, I followed the instructions on the link you posted and I am hapy to say that I have Windows XP and Ubuntu running together on my PC! Although, something happened to my system restore points, but no biggie- at least most of my installed programs are still there although now I have to uninstall the useless garbage that the computer came with (like HP Games >_>).

    Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!! I have edit the first post to add in [Solved], right?
    Edit: D'oh, I should have followed the link in your signature. X_X
