comment Wubi installation error!
If you want to install Ubuntu, don't use Wubi. It isn't really that stable and if you run into trouble, it can be a bit fiddly. Use a LiveCD.

The Gentoo instructions for chrooting are fine. And if he lost his kernel, then he can install it with sudo apt-get install linux-image-[version] linux-headers-[version].
