Further to my thread on this, I have now downloaded and burnt the cd for 
Kubuntu 10.04 beta 1 and, this beta fixes the X desktop incompatibility 
with my monitor and rectifies the sound issue with Win 7. The beta is 
running kernel 2.6.32-6. Is is possible to update 9.10 to this kernel?
Also when 10.04 comes out how does one upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 
without losing everything that is currently installed? I have a number 
of applications that I don't want to have to recover if I can avoid it, 
not to mention what is needed to activate my wireless network card which 
is not supported by linux.
As I side issue I encountered something that I assume will be fixed in 
subsequent releases, when the 10.04 beta boots it displays a boot splash 
screen that says "ubuntu" rather than "kubuntu", which was initially 
disconcerting to me as it lead me to think I had downloaded the wrong iso.
