Thanks guys, reading about that Wubi solution looks like the simplest way to have a dual-boot system. I like it! I'll be getting my root on later tonight

i prefer Ubuntu just cause you can install it in windows then simply restart and boot into Linux or Windows. This way you don't need to worry about not having Linux again.

I'm sure that /system is 8 and the kernel is 13, but don't know about anything else. You might be able to figure it out by reading the ptable.txt file generated by the --getpartitiontable command - it's pretty clear except for the part where it uses 3 letter partition names.

While we are on the topic of development, we really need a forum over here at XDA for the G-Slate!

I have no idea why I'd ever need/want to root my G Slate, I'm fairly simple in my desires for my device - but I have to say I'm delighted to see it is possible and am ever so grateful for folks who figure this stuff out because it keeps moving G Slate towards legitimacy.

Thank you!!

The hard part under Windows would be mounting a file as an ext4 filesystem, but if you can do that you win.

No kidding. Since the linux method failed miserably for me, I've decided to press forward with trying to do it on Windows. Problem is, I have yet to find any way to mount an ext4 filesystem on Windows. There are several options out there that will allow you to read ext4 filesystems on Windows, but not write. Any suggestions?
