Crunch Gear has a
of Wubi, which runs Ubuntu from within Windows.
"I dont have the patience to go through a full install of Ubuntu but I also dont think that running the Live CD does the operating system justice. If only there were an easy-to-use Windows installer that didnt "require you to modify the partitions of your PC or to use a different bootloader." Enter Wubi.
Heres some more information from Wubis FAQs
"How does Wubi work?
Wubi adds an entry to the Windows boot menu which allows you to run Linux. Ubuntu is installed within a file in the windows file system (c:\wubi\disks\system.virtual.disk), this file is seen by Linux as a real hard disk.
Is this running Ubuntu within a virtual environment or something similar?
No. This is a real installation, the only difference is that Ubuntu is installed within a file as opposed to being installed within its own partition.
