Hi all, I understand how WUBI works, but here is a twist: I have a pc dual booted with Vista and XP Pro, single drive, two partitions. Will WUBI work on such a setup? In other words, will it add a third entry to the Vista boot manager?
Thanks in advance

Warning wild as guess. :) Depends on which OS you install it in. Probably going to add it to the boot menu of that OS. At least you get a bump

This is a bit of a guess, too, but based upon what I see with my Wubi install of 8.04, if installed under Vista, e.g., there will be at boot the two current entries in the boot manager, which I presume will be Vista and XP. Selecting Vista will bring you to another boot manager screen, for lack of a better term, which will give you the option to boot into Vista (default) or Ubuntu.
