What ubuntu does is
1) Install ubuntu as a windows program
2) Run the ubuntu installer as any other win32 installer
3) Ubuntu is installed on a clean NTFS partition
4) Use windows bootloader
So, you install and uninstall ubuntu from within windows. But, to
switch between windows and ubuntu you have to reboot.
This is what I have gathered from other people. I haven't used it
myself. Probably the wubi[1] page would have more information on this.
