Triple-boot Jolicloud? (XP, Ubuntu 9.04 & Jolicloud)

I have an Acer Aspire ONE w/120GB HDD and I learned about Jolicloud through a Tweet from Veronica Belmont. Thus I requested an invitation and in anticipation of a positive response, I have a few questions.

My ONE is configured to dual-boot Windows XP SP3 and Ubuntu 9.04. I am using WUBI to run Ubuntu inside Windows. Based on the above, can I also install JOLICLOUD the same way?

If not, can I install JOLICLOUD in Ubuntu?

I assume that if none of the preceding works, then I can always repartition my 120 GB HDD and reserve some space for JOLICLOUD. If I do so, how much space do you recommend and are there any "gotchas"? (i.e. dual boot issues, etc.)

Looking forward to being eligible for an "alpha" invitation ;-)

I did exactly this on an ASUS eee pc900hd 160gb, I used the make USB install in 9.04 with the Jolicloud ISO
You could go really small with the partition but I like bigger, I don't have full time internet & Jolicloud does almost everything Ubuntu does while offline.

I used the triple-boot approach until yesterday. As I did not feel the need to keep two Linux based distros on my system, I deleted Ubuntu. Thus I now have Windows XP SP3 and Jolicloud. I now plan on adding Windows 7 RC1 as a third boot option for my Netbook.
