I have Windows XP Professional 32-Bit and I want to Dual Boot it with Ubuntu. I had tried Ubuntu and generally liked it but Un-installed it because I did not have any way to get XP up again and I lost all my stuff through the install process.

I ignored the stupid warning because I did not think I would care if I lost them.Anyways, now. Anyway,I want Ubuntu. But Dual-Booted. So I wont have to re-install XP later by partitioning the Hard drive and going through the 2-Hour process. T

his is my First Ever Dual-Boot and its on a Single-Processor Computer. I am not going through Wubi so I wanted to make sure I do this right and not screw my computer.

So would this be successful ?

Are there any other methods or precautions ?
