The Ubuntu that I installed was installed outside of windows as a dual-boot. It is not visible in add/remove programs. I downloaded the Ubuntu iso image, burned it onto a CD/DVD and then booted off of it. I then allowed it to partition my HD and install itself as a dual-boot with Windows.

One odd thing, though, is that my standard usb keyboard doesn't get read at boot-up. I cannot use my usb keyboard and use it's arrow keys to highlight my Windows XP boot. (The boot defaults to Ubuntu.) Right now, I have to have 2 keyboards connected to this pc. My normal Logitech keyboard and then a much older non-usb keyboard (with a round plug that I forget what you call).
Been here since the beginning.
