You should really install a newer version of Ubuntu. 6.10 is no longer supported and there could be serious security risks. I think 10.04 is the oldest version that is still supported.

Also, you can install a 64 bit version of ubuntu.

You could download Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, burn the iso file you downloaded (verify the download by verifying the md5sum) to a disk (at slowest speed), boot from it into "Try Ubuntu". Go to Administration/System/gparted. Delete the Ubuntu partition. Expand the Windows partition over the old Ubuntu partition.

Or, install 10.04 over the Ubuntu partition. If you install over the partition the installation will create a new boot menu and should show the Windows install also.

There are also ways to perform the first steps I mention and boot from the Windows disk to repair the installation and create a new MBR.

You can use this link to find further info that I do not have readily available now: http://www.googlubuntu.com/

If you can't boot from the optical drive, then how did you install Ubuntu in the first place?

Also, are you sure you installed Ubuntu to its own partition? Or did you install it from inside Windows using Wubi?
