Yeh i wasn't sure about that...not sure how ubuntu manages to boot off of it 
but anyway, is there a chance you could instruct me how to do this. 

I tried actually doing this to begin with using mac-fdisk. It asked me for the 
start block...
i gave it 2p and then it asked me for a size i think,  i gave it 3p hoping it 
would pick the start of the next partition (also tried with 3p and 4p) and it 
asked me for a name, then said it was an invalid range.
