     I would be careful of accepting what Marc has written as something 
which is easy to achieve. The addition of grub2 to Ubuntu makes for 
certain difficulties particularly in dealing with windows partions.
There are good articles on the web about it but having just completed a 
similar project I thought I urge  caution and research before leaping in.
