Not sure With Ubuntu. You could use a VMWare type product and do it that way .

You can dual boot with pretty much anything, provided you set up the bootloader.

^ This.

Just install lilo bootloader after you install ubuntu.

That is if the option isn't on the install cd. It should have lilo and grub.

I'm pretty sure linux installs GRUB by default. It's actually a quite nice bootloader

you have the option to install lilo instead.

Grub is fine too, but it has its flaws.

LILO or GRUB are two common bootloaders...I'm more used to Grub though.

You can dualboot any OS, as long as Mac OS isn't implied. Remember that by default, AFAIK, Ubuntu Server has no GUI...just to let you know...but I assume you know already.
