i just install vista over linux, the parititon shows up, i just had to delete it, and then when it showed up as unallocated space, i hit next and it starts installing??

my method was with a dvd of vista maybe thats why, but it wasnt difficult at all, and it installs the bootloader right over grub so no errors or anything when booting.
