Ok I think what happened is that She had accepted a regular update from 
Ubuntu and since the Version 9.04 is now out they offer to upgrade you 
automatically. She did not realise that this was different from normal 
update and clicked yes so it attempted to update and the update failed. 
I live up N of Houston so is a distence call and I don't know enough to 
help her get tru it she lives alone and has only the one puter so she 
needs someone to talk her tru reversing the upgrade and restoring her 

I would gladly do it if I knew how so I hoped someone local to her could 
call her and get her sorted out. She cannot access the web if she cannot 
boot the machine. If noone can help her I will try tomorrow I am way too 
tired tonight.
Come on guys she needs help and lots of you could just pick up the phone 
and talk to her.
