Do you find that sometimes your Windows partition isn't available in Ubuntu? You'll know because you'll see the error message, "Cannot mount volume". This probably happens because Windows crashed or hung during shutdown. If Windows isn't cleanly shutdown then Ubuntu will refuse to mount the partition. If, even after Windows is cleanly shutdown, the Windows partition refuses to appear, then run a chkdsk on the partition from within Windows. See also Tip 38, on page 98, which describes how to repair the Windows partition from within Ubuntu.
