Ah! This could be because they are named "linux-image" in Ubuntu!
2.6.24-21.42 is the current kernel for 8.04 (Hardy) however on one of my Dell
laptops this kernel does not have sound. We have three 1525n's and two work
perfectly with the new kernel and one has to boot in 19 for sound to work.
Odd as they are all the same processor but the one which has no sound has the
built-in bluetooth. Otherwise they are all the same machine. The other two
have bluetooth but it is a usb little plug in dongle.
