If I install Ubuntu 8.04 inside Windows Vista, how do I uninstall it?

Thanks,
Dale

Ubuntu is not a application, it is a operating system just so you know.
Though there is wubi that allows you to install ubuntu alongside windows.

I'm not sure if you can do it, or how... but it would be much better to run Windows in Ubuntu rather than Ubuntu in Windows. I know you can do it with Windows XP.

windows has its own set of VM software

It sounds like you're thinking about Wubi. This is the link to WubiGuide Wiki.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide

It tells about installing and uninstalling.

I hope this is a help to you

can be done all you need to do is build a virtual machine

a pc inside ubuntu

and then install vista on it

basically go to add/remove programs in the control panel, or the vista equivalent and unistall it like any other prog ;)
