I have to chip in that I've never had any such problem with gparted or grub with a winxp partition of >8GB (currently 30GB), with grub on MBR.

Maybe I'm just lucky.


Same here.  I use either 20 or 30 gb partitions for XP and have no problems with grub or dual-booting.  Pretty sure it's a partition table thing and someone already mentioned using cfdisk, which can be done from booting to the Ubuntu Live CD before installing.
