Now I'll be able to play with Ubuntu on my desktop as well as have it as my primary os on my laptop.
This is probably thread jacking, but here it goes:
I'll be honest, I pretty much hate anything to do with Microsoft. That said, Virtualbox.org makes a product that will do everything Microsoft Virtual PC will do. It's a good alternative if you need to keep windows (I really can't see why) then you can install this, install linux on top.
Also, MS Virtual PC 2007 is free if your O/S passes that "genuine" crap test.
I was trying to install fluxbuntu, i recon the command will be the same.. I forgot how to configure xf86config from the shell, when i boot my freshly installed fluxbuntu, it gets to where i imagine a login screen will be, and then stretches to about 2000 x 600 resolution and i cant figure it out. ive forgotten the command.

Try Wubi, It installs Ubuntu in Windows like a program, no dualboot or virtualization, and you can uninstall it later just like you uninstall any other program. I understand there are a few issues with the 7.10 version, but they may be fixed by now. http://wubi-installer.org/
I installed it in Vista on my computer and it seemed to work OK, But I had to Install a Vista Partition to Put Vista in, since I use Ubuntu. and I made the partition too small so I didn't really have enough space to really test Wubi well. I played with it for about an hour then Installed Hardy Heron in the Partition I had put Vista in. I can only take Windows in short bursts.
