8.04 in Windows

Well, I tried the WUBI install. Sucks big time. Doesn't set up any 
hardware. Can't do any software installs because it can't get to the 
repos. It also doesn't just set up an icon on the desktop. It uses the 
Windows boot manager to choose the OS to boot up instead of Grub. The 
bottom line is that it doesn't run Kubuntu "in" Windows but runs it off 
the NTFS file system.

First I tried the WUBI install from the install disk. Didn't even work. 
Downloaded the WUBI installer from the site on Source Forge. It worked.

Then when you un-install it doesn't completely cleanup after itself. The 
Windows boot loader is still jacked.

I don't think it's necessarily a bad idea just needs to be smarter.

Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.
