Actually, what wubi is is an installer that starts running under windows,
but it ends up being a pure boot of ubuntu, with files being used for the
disk images. It installs grub as a boot menu between windows and ubuntu.
Is there much of a problem getting a tv tuner card working under Linux? Not
sure exactly which cards I have, (I think one is a wavewatcher pro, pci id's
report it as a brooktree bt878, and the other one is on board my ati rage

i may be mistaken but isn't wubi a virtualization. if so then that is
your prob. i dont know of many virtualizations which handle 3d cards.
