Hi,
When you install Ubuntu, it will give you the option to install it on the empty hard disk. After the installation is complete, it should detect your Vista partition and add it to the boot menu so you can choose which OS to boot to at startup.

You should not need to get any drivers, unless you have unsupported hardware. Assuming this is a regular desktop, you probably won't have driver problems.

I hope that clears things up a bit!

Can you help with this problem?
