Just finished reading this article over at apc mag. I thought it would be a great addition to in the Linux section if a member had an issue regarding the topic.:)

Scenario: You have Linux already installed but want to dual boot it with Vista on the same hard drive.

Summary of tutorial: We'lldual-boot Ubuntu 7.04 with Vista. With Ubuntu already installed and owning the entire drive, we'll use the latest version of GParted to shrink the Linux partition to create space for a Vista install. Then, as Vista's MBR will then overwrite GRUB, we'll reinstall GRUB to the Linux partition and use EasyBCD to modify the Vista bootloader so that it will boot Ubuntu.
This tutorial is an updated version of our previous Ubuntu/Vista dual-booting workshop. The main differences with this version are the newer versions of Ubuntu, GParted and EasyBCD, and we bypass using the DISKPART utility during the Vista install.
This tutorial has been tested on a VMWare Workstation 6 machine and an ASUS P5AD2-based Intel system with 2GB RAM and an 80GB Seagate SATA drive.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
