No. Create only one ext3 partition. Vista doesn't support ext3 partitions. Leave Vista partition as it is. If you have free space, create new partition and if you dont have any, shrink existing partition and create free space.

Well i went ahead and did exactly as you said... I dont understand what i could be doing wrong. When i pressed ESC into GRUBS boot there was only 3 different options:
Ubuntu (safe mode)
So i had to install vista again. I noticed that there was different flags i could put on partitions, which one should i set to boot? And i noticed there was a option to make partitions primary or extended i beileve, do i have to make the ext3 extended?
Thanks for the help

First off i would like to thank devils_casper for putting the time into trying to help my nub a$$.
I had to partition
ntfs< Heres where vista go's 35 GIB
ext3<Heres where linux go's 35 GIB
Linux Swap 512MIB
Fat32 the rest of your space
Once linux was installed i had to edit menu.lst in the terminal to show windows vista.
After literally 15 fresh ubuntu and vista installs i am finished!
