Ubuntu Server as dual boot with windows

By techrepublic ·
I have windows xp and windows vista 32 bit editions on same machine could you describe a method to install ubuntu server 64 bit on same machine ,i doubt about using wubi as no .iso image is available for server except alternate iso of ubuntu which i think is a desktop version.
Also, What is GRUB GNU?is it build into live cd of ubuntu?

Ubuntu install

Download the CD image and write it to a CD (server or Desktop version. I run both). You install it into any free partition or hard drive. It will recognize the other operating systems and create a boot menu so that you can select which OS you want to load.

For a complete description of GNU GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) see here or here It is built into the live CD.
