Re: ubuntu and windows 7
You will want to install windows before you install ubuntu. This has to do with the mbr setup. The only other thing that I can think of is that you will want to make sure that you choose to allow ubuntu to make the partitions for you if you haven't ever played with the ubuntu installer. Linux labels partitions differently than windows, and I wouldn't want you to mess up your windows install because you were confused about a partition.
