You can install Ubuntu into a file on the Windows filesytem (See Wubi). No need to create an extra partition.

This will also not overwrite the Windows-Bootloader (as GRUB et al. do) but use the Windows-Bootloader to start Ubuntu.

Btw, does anyone know what happened to the "Linux In a Window" (under Windows) that i recall from the day of Win98?

    There is CoLinux, which is a port of the Linux Kernel (and some userspace) to Windows.

    I've never heard of that, but VirtualBox runs Ubunto in a seemless window on a win32 or win64 desktop, which is very convenient (and free).


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
