I want to install Ubuntu on my Mac but I don't want have to use rEFIt. Can I do that? Can I just hold the control key on startup and use that to pick what I startup with? And if so would I install Ubuntu the same way just skipping the rEFIt part? Thanks. And I'm running Mac OS X 10.8.2

This cannot be done without installing the boot loader, unless you use virtualization instead.
