your image reminds me of betty.

1) where was ubuntu installed or were you running a live cd when you could only see 2 hdd as read only?

2) can you explain more of what you have, we have lots with microsoft installed on first drive so be trusting pls.

eg drive 1 partition 1 c
partition 2 e = data backup
partition 3 f = download area for ms

drive 2 partition 1 fedora /
partiton 2 swap for linux

then tell us how you boot?

do you use ms bootloader on drive 1 to boot to linux on drive 2 or what?

3) if you can get into your linux, post your contents of
/etc/fstab.....there is no confidential info here to embarrass any of us.

and when you boot into linux do you see grub or lilo or some other bootloader?
