If you have just ubuntu on it at present, and then install windows 
later, wherever, I think all you have to do is re install grub using a 
live CD and a cli grub sequence in order to reinstate grub after 
windows installer has overwritten the master boot record. If you do 
not do this, ubuntu will not normally be available from a boot up menu
