problem in installing Ubuntu in Mac

Hello there!
I have a intel based MacBook and installed Mac OS X 10.4.9. I have also installed Windows XP along with boot camp and both OS were working good. Now, I have installed Ubuntu 7.10 in third partition. Ubuntu was installed with one error like "unable to install boot loader". Any way, I finished the installation process. After that, I tried to boot Windows XP but that did not start. Moreover, I am not able to see the Ubuntu boot option when system boots. But, Mac is working good. What might be the problem? Is there any problem of 32/64 bit compatibility of Ubuntu with Mac.
I am worry about that. I have been trying since couple of days back. Waiting for your help.
Please.........

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please read this for more information.
