If anyone would like to try - just create a normal Windows partition with Boot Camp, install Windows, then install Ubuntu 8.04 from Windows and select run as virtual machine. You now have a triple boot. No fuss, no muss, no cuss.

Doing this does not allow you to run ubuntu natively which can pose a problem for various things.
