    Interesting little fact: the Ubuntu boot loader loads before the Windows boot loader. My dad just popped the disk in and installed it following the onscreen instructions. It went well until he wanted to try other versions of Linux and now he has 8 items on the Ubuntu loader (to match the 10 items in the Windows loader, all of which are different installs of XP).
