I believe the suggestion is to use WUBI to install Ubuntu within 
Windows. That way, you don't have to worry about partitioning or GRUB, 
as UB basically gets installed as a Windows program which just happens 
to get listed in the Windows boot manager. That was how I first tried 
UB. Now that I have added a second disk, I have UB on the second disk 
and access Windows through GRUB, but WUBI was a very gentle way to get 
introduced to Linux. WUBI also gives you the ability to use the Windows 
un-installer t remove UB if you find you don't like it (unlikely!) or if 
you manage to bork UB so thoroughly that you need to start again (I did, 
more than once!) HTH
