    dual boot windows XP(first) and ubuntu(second)

    i tried this before but after adjusting the grub2 menu all i would get was a black screen after the POST

    good thing i made a ghost like always

    so what i wnat to do is

    reinstall ubuntu next to my windows xp

    i want to use ubuntu for secure payments(since i trust ubuntu is save) since on my xp there always some stuff that log it :/(pls dont ask why)

    i do know that when after i install ubuntu and made xp my main boot again that i can encrypt teh partition that my ybubtu is on so that my xp has no access to it

    but now to my main question

    Goto Ubuntu Software Center and install StartUp-Manager. The Startup-Manager is under System>Administration>StartUp-Manager. Select Windows XP under Default Operating System.
