Uh.. how did you installed Ubuntu? – Uri Herrera Nov 29 '11 at 4:36
i think u have installed Ubuntu on D partition ... – One Zero Nov 29 '11 at 5:39

your windows D partition mounted on /host
to access it open nautilus, on the sidebar click Filesystem and now you can see the host folder that's your windows D partition

no, but you can create a bookmark go to /host folder then click Bookmark -> Add Bookmark and you can rename it with what you want eg: "Windows D" – soekarmana Dec 2 '11 at 13:36
