Thanks for that tip. I think if I install Wubi it'll create the appropriate grub entry for me to copy, and then it'll just be a matter of following your directions to get it to work. When I get a chance to try this out, I'll report back.
So, just to be clear, there's nothing special about already having a dual-boot system that is required. It's just a way of accessing the necessary files in Vista? Thanks. Oops, I missed the last post. Think my question is answered. Thanks.
With my minimal knowledge, I can't tell from reading your instructions if this will work on a machine currently using just Vista (in other words, not dual-booting with XP). I'm wondering if I can get the Wubi Ubuntu installer to work by using your method, but I don't want the extra hassle of installing XP, in addition (insert cracks about XP being superior here). Maybe using WinPE or similar to edit the Vista files? Thanks for this tutorial.
