If you have a copy of Windows, it is possible to install it. Although, if you do not or simply want better integration, use WINE. Or, if you want to run Windows inside Ubuntu and have a copy of Windows, you can install it inside VirtualBox. This will basically have the same effect as installing Windows alongside Ubuntu.
