I'll try it the next time I boot into ubuntu.

I'm actually using, 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. ;)
