2 bits each. so you have a 4 bit hd?

i don't understand this. if you split your hd and thus have free disk space for ubuntu then ubuntu should be able to detect this and set up a linux partition for you.

have you already installed ubuntu and are trying to boot after installation? then please boot from livecd and give the output of:
Code:
fdisk -l
