Dual boot XP and Ubuntu 9.04 on HP Compaq 8710p

Hi. I know there are forums around everywhere that say how to do this, but I want to have as close to accurate as possible. So I come to the experts . I am running XP now, I'd like to install Ubuntu 9.04 on here as well. Any help would be appreciated.
