well, surprise surprise surprise,

I installed Ubuntu 10.x and it detected an existing Windoze partition,
asked whether I wanted to install it side to side or do a full disk
reinstall, I went with the side to side one, somehow it fixed the
windows boot record or I was too impatient with the previous boot (I
booted the windows partition out of desperation trying to fix a
problem with OpenOffice's calc program), but the end result is that
now I have a dual boot machine.

I haven't been so lucky in the wifi land but that does not worry me
much yet....yet.
