Oh right, now that makes more sense, it is quite funny how different 
that is to the article I found. That is quite annoying really.

I have to admit though, up till 9.04, I was having a few problems 
getting my netbook and laptop to work the way I wanted it to, but with 
Ubuntu 9.04 the difference is amazing, its even working really well on 
my crappy laptop, which is what I'm using now. It is getting better with 
each edition. I'm trying to get some of my friends to use it, especially 
one who has major problems with a Vista laptop. The more I use it, the 
more I try to tell people about it.
