So heres the scoop. I'm running ubuntu with kde (basically kubuntu with more packages) on a laptop with limited space. I got this laptop from my school, and i have a partition with windows xp that i need to keep on so that my school doesnt freak on me. They only let me on the wireless with windows so i need to run windows and linux at once somehow. As i said, i have vmware installed and i set it to boot into /dev/sda2 (my windows partition). When i try to boot into windows using vmware, it gives me some crazy error and tells me to repair it. I can boot into the partition (outside of vmware) fine. So is it possible at all to boot into a seperate partition of a hard drive i am using in vmware? also do you guys have any suggestions to get me running windows? i dont want to boot straight into it because this computer is amazingly slow and im in love with linux.

So your saying you wwant to run ubuntu and windows at the same time?

If so go to vmware and create a ubuntu partition and then install ubuntu and then you can run ubuntu inside windows
