No, i only have acces to my own macbook right now and will need to repartition my disk, wich means i have to delete all my files. –  user1043065 Feb 12 '12 at 19:05
    
@user1043056: OS X can resize HFS partitions without data loss. –  millimoose Feb 12 '12 at 19:47

Try to install ubuntu with unetbootin on your hard disk, boot and than run ubuntu installation. But you will need two partitions. Good way to install ubuntu is from usb stick, that can be done with unetbootin too.
