I've been dual-booting my Windows 2000 laptop with Ubuntu since 2006 
with the 6.04 release.  The upgrade from Intrepid 8.10 to Jaunty 0.04 
was absolutely the easiest upgrade I've ever done on any system from 
one O/S release to another.

If you want to try again, or provide more information about how the 
9.04 installation was made on your machine I'd be happy to pitch in 
and help you get it sorted.
