    i have two hard drives, so i just installed ubuntu on the non-windows drive. I'm still messing around with parting out my windows drive so i can have both OSs on my SATA hd...but i dont have a windows disk, lol, so that makes it a little difficult.

    Ubuntu installed GRUB automatically which set up the boot loader (as long as the ubuntu drive is set to master).
