Please report a bug at http://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/
Include the following:
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 from your Warty system
/var/log/XFree86.0.log from your Warty system
/etc/X11/xorg.conf from your Hoary system
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from your Hoary system

That question is only ever asked if the system is unable to probe your
