ok here is the deal i got windows xp and it's dual booted with ubuntu 8.10 if i update to ubuntu 9.14 (not sure if that is the new one) will it mess with my windows in anyway? i will be updating from ubuntu using the Update Manager i am kinda iffy about it

well my good man its not 9.14 its 9.04 thats the newest...not counting ultimate!!!:P but no it will not effect your dual boot...i have ubuntu, winxp, and vista all on one drive with split partitions and i move around and update and upgrade as i please with no side effects to my other os...all it will do is add a different entry into your GRUB at boot up! if you really wanna be on the safe side just do a complete fresh install of jaunty(9.04)!!!
