How can I install Ubuntu 9.1 to dual boot on a machine that already runs Windows XP?

This is kinda tricky. I have two hard drives, I dont know which is slave and which is master, but on one of them my Windows XP is installed. When I installed Ubuntu with default settings, i.e. just hitting next, next without making any changes in the boot or any other settings, there was no menu from which I can select the operating system. Windows started directly and some HDD space was also used up.

Can u tell me how to properly install the Ubuntu system, so that I can select the operating system when booting? One of my friends told me that I have to make changes in Boot Options just after the partition selection step. Please Help! I’m stuck with boring Windows.
