I'm a newbie - please help!!

i have a partitioned laptop; xp, win7,files+folders etc and a 'spare'. id heard about linux and ubuntu but knew nothing about them. when ubuntu 9.10 came out i downloaded it and burnt it to an iso, no problem. i started to install it on my spare partition. everything was going fine when i was presented with a list of options with \ext3 \ext4 and other things that made no sense to me. i had to spend ages re-surfing to find out what it was all about. finally i installed it on ext4 (i dont know if thats what i was supposed to do) and got it up and running. what was impressive was how really fast web pages came up on firefox. it seemed worth all the pain! but then as i was adding more software i just got fed up of constantly being asked for my password, even worse than uac in win7! i got fed up so i rebooted and expected to get back into windows. imagine my horror at finding xp and win7 gone! there was no boot loader menu, no windows option at all.
