    Hi Chuck it should be easy IF Ubuntu will load. I suggest getting 
the Jaunty LiveCD and run it WITHOUT loading first to see how well it is 
going to work.

    Then if the test looks good go to System-Administration-Partition 
maker and run that and actually make a new partition for Ubuntu, about 
20 GB and a Swap Partition of 3 GB.

    When you load Ubuntu put it in the partition and let the Grub boot 
loader load all three systems.

    Have fun.
