Re: installation using windows installer
Actually, since you used Wubi to install, it does not sit alongside Windows but INSIDE it. Wubi creates a file INSIDE a Windows partition that serves as a Linux filesystem when running Ubuntu. So, all your Ubuntu stuff is resident in that one file, inside an existing NTFS partition.

but I don't know how to access my files and programmes, retrieve my favourites on mozilla etc., in a word the lot.
I'll be glad for any pointers/starters
As pointed out, you can access your Windows files (but not programmes) from inside Ubuntu by looking under /host in the Linux filesystem ... but you can't access your Ubuntu files from inside Windows.
