comment Wubi Install for Mac OS X
Just installed it and it is running a little slow on my machine (2 GHz Dual Core). I think I'm going to end up partitioning to make it faster but I'm marking this as the correct answer since it provided a way to install Ubuntu on a Mac without surrendering HD space to a partition (which was in fact the question). Thanks! Until Mubi...

Do you know if you can boot to Ubuntu instead of running it from within Mac OS X to make it run faster?

Thanks! I did a quick look up of VirtualBox and based on the screenshots it looks like it's running OS X with a VM window displaying the other OS (i.e. Ubuntu). Is it safe to assume that this approach won't give up any partitioned HD space to the VM operating system? If I understand it right, if I'm running the VM from within OS X then I'm within the OS X partition so I wouldn't need an extra partition for Ubuntu, right? If that's the case then it's just a matter of speed.
