Dual Boot in DELL XPS M1330 with Windows Vista, Ubuntu and Dell MediaDirect 3.3

I need Vista for my office works which is on .NET Framework 3.5 (WPF, WCF) and GNU/Linux for my personal project in python and QT.
It's not easy at all


Banking on my years of experience with installing operating systems, I decided to re-install Vista and MediaDirect. My hatred towards the manuals made things worst by discarding the warning given in Dell MediaDirect CD. I installed Vista, blew up Ubuntu and MediaDirect, but got close to make it work right. The problem with MediaDirect is that, you cannot install direct from Vista Operating System or the CD itself during the boot. You have to first allocate the space (2G) for MediaDirect by booting with MediaDirect CD and then install the Operating System (Vista for example) and then complete the installation (MediaDirect installation) from the installed Operating System (Vista).
