    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.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    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
    Ubuntu (safe mode)
    Ubuntu recovery

    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

    Problem Solved!

    First off i would like to thank devils_casper for putting the time into trying to help my nub a$$.

    Solution:
    I had to partition

    Fat32
    ntfs< Heres where vista go's 35 GIB
    ext3<Heres where linux go's 35 GIB
    Extention
    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!

    Jeff
