It's a new feature of 8.04 that basically lets you install Ubuntu into Windows--it can be removed like a normal Windows program, but allows you to set aside a certain amount of space on your hard drive for Ubuntu, and allows you to boot into it as if it was installed on a separate partition. I haven't done it myself, but I've heard some very favorable reviews, so it's probably something that would be good to check out.

We're doing this manually.

Strange that Wubi didn't work properly though... maybe try checking the CD for defects (boot from it, select "check CD for defects"), that might throw something up.
Did you have any previous linux installations beforehand? 8.04 wouldn't install for me simply because i had a previously existing swap partition.. bit crappy if you ask me..
