Hi, I was just getting ready to install ubuntu 10.10 64x with wubi but I read that it has some serious issues. Am I safe to install ubuntu 10.10 with wubi? Have the issues been fixed by now? Thanks, emachine10

Hi and welcome to the forums :-)

I am not sure what "serious issues" you are referring to, but if you follow the Wubi Guide to install and the Wubi Megathread to lock the grub-pc* packages then you should be fine:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1639198

In the Wubi Megathread, look for the section after Permanent Fix (which you do not need to apply on a fresh install). The section after describes how to lock the grub packages to avoid problems.
