[ec2] Running an AMI with the Management Console and Putty

I'm trying to use an 8.04 server AMI, but am having trouble connecting. I've
used other AMIs without trouble with a keypair I generated, and then
converted to a .ppk file for use with Putty.

I launch the 8.04 AMI using the Management Console and select my keypair. I
then use Putty to try to connect to it using the corresponding .ppk file.
When the login prompt comes up, I type in ubuntu@<DNS <ubuntu@%3CDNS> NAME>.
This immediately fails, and I can't do anything else.

What am I doing wrong?
