Yes, also Ubuntu 8.04LTS has the WUBI that lets you install from Windows and shows up in add/remove. a lot easier to manage if Windows is your primary OS.

If you want to go with dual booting UB7 then you will need:

A HDD with Windows
A Ubuntu 7 Live CD
An Hour or so to Kill

with windows Installed boot up the Live CD and select Install from the desktop, when prompted, resize your windows partition to allow for about 20-40GB for Ubuntu. If you aren't asked to resize you will have to configure this manually with a partitioning software.
