I'll try it the next time I boot into ubuntu.
I'm actually using wubi-installer.org, which I'm quite happy with.
Almost hassle-free linux/windows multiboot, it doesn't touch the MBR or
partition tables at all.
I spent four hours trying to get vmware player and vmware server to work
properly. Not a pleasant experience, and it installs some stuff that
slows down windows startup a lot. I just need linux for testing
cross-platform code and build systems.
Someone should file a bug telling Walter to fix the linux DMD install
instructions. Just putting softlinks in /urs/local/bin does not work,
because dmd won't find the phobos source that way. Either dmd.conf has
to be fixed, or you have to put dmd/bin in your path instead of
softlinking. I'm just mentioning it, in case someone feels like taking
on that crusade. ;)
