Actually, it doesn't. It's a nice tutorial for installing Linux onto a

You are absolutely correct in your assumption. I have set up several
machines with dual boot of Windows XP and Ubuntu and, in every case, the
installer got it correct.
Fine - but that's not much help if you (as Jake has) have already installed

right with every install since Warty - except the time I installed to an
external drive, but there's enough anecdotal evidence that, even if there
isn't anything actually wrong with the installer, it's not too difficult
for a user to complete the install without getting grub properly set up.
That said, I think Nils probably got it right, with the menu just being
