The one redeaming feature of Vista is that is can resize the C: drive itself

I did that when I installed kubuntu on my new HP laptop

1) tell Vista that it only needs ~30GB or so of HD
2) Set up a couple of partitions on the free space ( I did one for / , one
for /home and one for swap)
3) Install Kubuntu and tell it to put grub on the MBR
4) enjoy
