    Dual booting Ubuntu with Windows XP

    Can anyone offer any tips or guidance on having XP safely co-existing with Ubuntu? I'm quite happy with being able to dual boot a machine but am worried that whilst in Ubuntu, kids can muck about with not only the Ubuntu system, but also knacker the Windows partition. Is there a way to safely lock down the linux side whilst still being able to run applications?

    You may want to investigate KDE's kiosk mode.
