(i have done this before but not with win7.) can i go into disk management and reduce the win 7 volume by say 50 gb. format it fat32 and install ubuntu. and still have dual-boot? thanks in advance.

    I would use Gparted to set up the partitions.

    It is the best and easiest route to go.

    You can also format using NTFS.
