    @Marvin: ang error msg tol kay sa win$ XP naman. mu gawas ang boot page sa XP pero dili cya ka detect sa sunod process, mukalit lang ug restart.

    bai, kung mo install ka dual OS you must have at least 2 partitions. 1 part for linux (aside from d swap space) and 1 for windows. instal nmo daan ang windows den test nmo if ok ang windows. pa boot nasad ka cdrom sa ubuntu para instol den choose ka unsa nga Os imo default mo boot. mas maau imo butang ang boot loader sa linux partition kai kung mo crash imo windows (or mbr), usab ka instol tanan. tagsa ra kaau mo crash ang linux. i hope this helps maski gamai lang..
