At the login screen, after you enter your username but before you
enter your password, there is a status bar across the bottom of the
screen. In there, there is a drop-down list of "session types" from
which (on 11.04) you can choose "Ubuntu" for Unity or "classic" for a
GNOME 2 desktop.

The same applies if you're running an older version in the Netbook
Remix edition.

Thank you very much, so even though I'm in classic(i Think ) and using a different desktop it still is 11.04 (thats what it says), good to know. I think it must be unity desktop
that is causing the freezing problem.  I have to check out one thing and that is to go into just ubuntu 11.04 and then go into classic and see what happens. INow when I boot I  goto the first
Page that comes up and I check to use the lower video option.
