How did you try to install Kubuntu (from within Windows, or booting from 
the Kubuntu CD ) ? Could you use the Kubuntu CD to run as a "live CD" ?

It's always a good idea to accurately describe what you tried and what 
the results were. This list is here to help you to (easily) install and

(dual booting Windows XP and Kubuntu 9.10 IIRC).

Good luck!
