    Adding Ubuntu to A Multi Boot Setup


    I currently have my windows xp machine setup with multiple boot options. I can boot into win xp, win xp recovery console, or mandriva linux. I am using the windows boot manager. I currently have Mandriva and its Swap file setup on their own partitions. I would like to install Ubuntu using Wubi. I am going to create a separate partition for the Ubuntu installation. My questions is: If I use Wubi to install Ubuntu will it add another selection to my windows boot manager screen or will it over write my existing boot manager setup?

    Hi, lennyrob!!! Welcome to LinuxForums!

    Wubi is an awesome idea, and I found this article, which you might find interesting. Turn out Wubi will add Ubuntu to your Windows boot.ini file, and add it to your list of boot options. No worries!

    Enjoy, and let us know how well it works for you!
