UNetbootin at is essentially the same thing for Ubuntu, Fedora, openSuse, Mandriva, and Archlinux; it allows you to install them without a CD from Windows, and like this installer and unlike Wubi, UNetbootin installs to a real partition not a loopmounted file.

Used this yesterday to install Debian stable from XP Pro.  Went without a hitch. 

We have needed something like this for years.  I used to always install Linux from DOS with loadlin back in the pre-W2K days.  Usually use a USB stick these days, but this is much more convenient.
