Default Dual Boot Unbuntu - Win2K

I've researched it and from what I can tell it is possible, but with a little work.

I'm just curious if anyone has actually done this successfully?

However, ubuntu didn't recognize my ethernet, sound. Not really easy to fix either. I kind of gave up for right now. Because i can't get on the internet. I can't access any of my root programs. Linux doesn't like all the new PCI-E stuff..

Also, i don't no how to compile the drivers code and i have to do that to install the driver.
