Vista XP Ubuntu 8.10 Vista installed first tripple boot


New Member
My PC came with Vista (C: drive) installed I set up a second primary partition and installed XP - everything works fine in the dual boot setup using easy BCD (installed on Vista) to boot Vista and XP.

I have 1/3 of the (only) HD as unpartitioned free space on the PC, I want to install Ubuntu 8.10 into that space and make it tripple boot.

Rather than explain the dozen or so things I tried that didn't work when attempting to install 8.10 & tripple boot.

Will someone please tell me (most humble groveling in the dirt begging please) what steps I should take that will work.

Thanks Again
