I want to try Ubuntu but I don't want to create a new partition on my disk. I have Windows XP. And I don't want to use Live CD.

Use Wubi. It lets you install it through Windows without booting up the Live CD.

I love this method. –  LightlySalted Oct 19 '10 at 23:02

either you can use VirtualBox or VMware or else simply use wubi and install Ubuntu inside Windows as another software!
