Yes, 18 hours. What I lack in technical skills are more than made by my stubborness.
Glad you got things working. Is that 18 hour figure accurate? I don't think I would have the patience to stick with an installation for 18 hours. I would have decided it wasn't worth the effort.
In the future, instead of dual boot, you might consider something like Oracle's VirtualBox. I have several versions of Ubuntu installed as Virtual Machines on my Win 7 system. One advantage to using VirtualBox is that you can run Linux apps from your Vista desktop. You could also go the other way and install VirtualBox on your Ubuntu machine and run Vista from Ubuntu.
Wireless nics are no problem in VirtualBox, it would use the Vista drivers to access your nic then emulate a nic so it would appear to Ubuntu that you have a wired connection.
