Is there a way to install an OS from inside another OS onto a separate partition?
I use Jolicoud on one laptop, and I installed it from within windows. It came with a great,easy to use piece of software that installed the OS directly.
I currently need a way to do this from windows with Ubuntu and would like to know whether there is a way?
Any ideas?

Jolli OS is based on Ubuntu Netbook Remix , but much more tweaked and tailored to suit your netbook needs.

For Ubuntu: you can try "Windows Installer For Ubuntu"

Here's the link with instructions.

Personally I haven't tried it, but I suppose you shouldn't have any hiccups.

Yes, the Ubuntu Windows installer (commonly referred to as Wubi) works in much the same way as the Joli OS one. It does add some additional ways for things to go wrong (and some performance overhead), so if you have issues the first course of action would be to switch to a dual boot configuration.
