Only in the fact that the system will now use GRUB instead. After you
boot, you'll be presented with the grub menu and from that can select
your Windows drive/partition.

These will help:

I *highly* recommend that you install a stable version of Ubuntu first -
either 8.04 or 8.10. See:

8.10 will give you the best path to easily update to 9.04 *after* 9.04
has been released and settled down (probably around late May or June).
8.04 will give you a 'Long Term Support/LTS' stable version.

Installing an alpha or beta version of Ubuntu is not for the faint-of-
heart, or beginner. You may get extremely lucky and everything will work
upon install. But more than likely, even if it does work on install,
you'll then receive an update/fix that may break the system again
(remember it's a beta). A few days later another update/fix may come
along that resolves the problem, etc., but anytime you run a beta you
should be prepared for an unstable environment.
