Installing linux mint 12 within windows


Hi

I am trying to install linux mint x86 within windows, when i click on mint4win.exe file the window pops up with an option to install within windows, but as i click it the wubi uninstaller popus up,
Prior to this i have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a separate partion using wubi installer, so if i click uninstall wubi will it just uninstall wubi or the Ubuntu OS too?

How to install mint now without uninstalling wubi or ubuntu. ?

Hi

I am skipping the idea of installing it within windows, looks too much to do for that.. i am looking to try out it in VM first. Hope that works..
