Myriam, take a look at :

( I wish I could send a picture )

Upgrade to 9.04 *over the Internet*:

1) The update notifier will report that a new distribution version is 
available. Click on its icon.

Click *Yes* to start the upgrade.

If the update notifier does not offer a new version upgrade you can 
force it. Type *Alt-F2* and type into the box *update-notifier-kde -u*


It should notify of the upgrade.


Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.
