Re: Dual boot Partitioning (WinXP and Ubuntu8.04)
Sharks is correct. Manual partition, choose the D drive, mount partition as / (root), then install. It will install GRUB over the MBR (MS boot will be over-written). GRUB will autodetect the OS's.
Just in case you have to ever reinstall windows you will have to reinstall GRUB. If you do not reinstall GRUB then it will automatically goto windows.
I hope this helps.
