I just did this same thing.
On my Ubuntu 9.04 I used KVM to install Win 7.
Runs great and I've had no problems.
I am in the process of migrating to where I just have one large 1.5T drive with Ubuntu on it and use KVM to host all of my other guest operating systems I use (Vista, XP, Win7).
I don't even dual boot any longer. Just boot directly to Ubuntu and then start a Windows VM if I need it running.
