I think so (provided that Ubuntu has a driver for it).

I don't have a Vista system to test with, so I can't tell.

Thanks for your posts guys. Glad to say i've got ubuntu installed and working well alongside vista. The eventual solution was using the newest version of Unetbootin as suggested by falko, except using the 'boot from iso' option (because my wifi adapter was not supported) .

I can only guess that the ubuntu cd's that i had burnt (or some other peice of hardware on my system) was causing the installer to crash.

Cheers for your help guys
