    You just need free, unpartitionned, space on your harddrive, then install Ubuntu. It will replace the boot loader, and you'll have 2 OS.

    You don't have free space?

    Well, post the output of
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    &
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    ...and someone will be able to help you.
