Ubuntu 10.10 Grub 2 different profiles, different Xorg drivers
 
Hello. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 as two options
1) VMWare under Linux (using Physical Driver)
2) Dual Boot with Windows

Now, the idea is great, access my Linux from Windows, and use Unity!!!

Then, I can run Konsole like if it would be a Windows app, pretty sweet I also want to run Ubuntu 10.10 as a stand-alone distro, without the need of VMWare (since it's installed in a Physical Drive)
The problem is the Xorg.conf driver I want to create two "profiles" in Grub 2, so I can have 2 different versions of Ubuntu

1) will use the VMWARE driver in Xorg
2) will use the Nvidia driver in Xorg

By doing that, I'll be able to use Compiz with nice Nvidia effects whenever I want (play games, use Compiz Cube, etc, etc)

I will also be able to use Ubuntu 10.10 from within Windows and use the power of Unity to run Ubuntu apps within Windows

Thanks a lot for your responses :)
