You could reinstall the boot sector (MBR) as grub is still there and active. There should be a tool in your Windows installer disk, but you will need to seek help from Windows folk not Ubuntu folk for this. Alternately (and probably better), you can install Kubuntu by booting into the live-DVD and not attempting to install with wubi This will restore grub with the correct settings after it has installed Kubuntu. If you want advice about wubi You might look at:
