Alright this is how it worked
I tried to boot ubuntu and create a new partition with ubuntu's
partition editor.  failed
i defragmented my HD in windows and tried again failed
I decided to try and use WUBI
wubi worked fine, i was getting ready to reboot into ubuntu but i
thought i would check some of the drivers i would need for wireless.
firefox wasnt working.  then i checked my email to see if that page
still worked.  wasnt working properly.  i reinstalled firefox thinking
that was the problem, still didnt work.  then i thought maybe if i
restarted windows i would have better luck.
Windows shut down never to be able to boot up again.
