At least it wasn't just me then.... ;)
Trying the 9.04, but what would be easier, reinst under ubuntu itself?
Would that be too hard? Recommended? I don't have much data in Linux, but
there are all kinds of files on the drive... I think the way wubi works is
it uses the loopback to mount files as drives (including / and /boot)
