    well my layout is

    c: -> xp
    d: -> data
    e: -> music
    f: ->unlocated space 100gb for ubuntu

    i would like to install ubuntu in the f: partition , without touching the mbr of xp

    may i install ubuntu in F: run xp , and use the xp boot.ini to boot with ubuntu

    well i found some tutorials , but outdated and really i get a bad headache
