provided there is enough room on the SSD to fit both, i wouldnt think you should run into any problems

could be a good idea if you play good games, 9.04 hasnt got good drivers for Intel 950 GMA graphics, i know, i ran doom 3 on my dell mini 9 when i used Window$ XP but 9.04 is not for gaming until the drivers are updated

good luck if you do ):P

thanks, I have done it, works okay with both OS, ubuntu is a bit slower than windows xp on this laptop but still okay and disk space is no problem this netbook has a 160 GB hard disk drive.
