You inspired me to visit the Vault and drag out the first Ubuntu disks
I ever installed from. Two *real* Ubuntu CDs, obtained from Canonical
and given to me by the guy who first introduced me to Ubuntu. It turns
out my memory was even more wrong than we thought - they are marked
"Version 5.10 for your PC".

I distinctly recall Dapper Drake though (well the name, anyway), so I'm
guessing it was my first upgrade.
