I am currently on vacation and when I get back home I will install Ubuntu 9.04 on my MacBook Pro, Since it has discreet graphics, how will I enable it?

If you run Ubuntu (or Windows for that matter) on your MacBook Pro, the Macbook Pro will automatically enable ONLY the discrete graphics controller, so you won't have to do anything yourself to enable it.

Unfortunately unless you boot via EFI (see this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=995704) for more info), there is no way to use the onboard (non-discrete) graphics chip.
