I have got the ubuntu iso on a CD. It has an option for installation. Now i need to know that will it succesfully boot with my pre existing Vista HB?? or do i have to follow the same procedure as for XP. Since I dont want to risk, please response only if you're dead sure. ;)

abhs, if you want to avoid the risk from a dual boot configuration, you can use the Wubi Installer to add Ubuntu without having to mess with the MBR, or any bootloaders.

OK i have changed my mind. I have put Ubuntu on a PenDrive and it works. Now i have loads of apps on my system and it seems that ubuntu cannot run .exe files. Is there any way for that
