I am a newbie trying to get Ubuntu to work alongside Windows XP.

I've downloaded Wubi but the Window boot manager is not displaying Ubuntu as an option when I reboot. The system goes directly to Windows. It only displays Windows when I press F8 at startup. I thought maybe the issue is that the Time-out setting was set to "zero".

When I click on the settings for "Startup and Recovery" a pop-up states :

C:/Boot.ini file Can not be opened. Operating system and timeout settings can not be changed.

However, even as an administrator I am unable to change the time setting.

thanks in advance.
