Default I think I made a boo-boo

Ok, so I recently installed Linux Ubuntu in order to dual boot, however whenever I start up now, it automatically goes to Linux. The boot CD is out of the drive...so I have no idea. I created a new partition on my HDD for Linux, so....I have no idea what the problem is. Anyone?

You have to add XP or Vista to the Grub boot menu. Either that or add the XP or Vista bootloader to the Grub. Not sure how that is done. EasyBCD can do this for you as well.

Best bet ask in the Linux area for the answer to this one.

It shouldn't autoboot. It should have a menu that lets you select which one you want in 25s or so. I can't say what's wrong there. I run the same setup and it works perfectly, new partition like you did as well.
