Added that OK, and finally remembered how to move it to the place I
wanted. No special effects though ... until I was given a (used)
flat-screen monitor by my daughters boyfriend yesterday. Fiddling with
the Ubuntu hardware settings, I discovered my Nvidia driver was
installed, but not activated. Now it's activated, I have everything back
just as on 8.04 :)

Don't know why it doesn't ask if you want to activate when you install.
