If you could, please post the specs of your computer and if your doing a dual boot with Windows or just installing Ubuntu for the first time... This will help the Experts here to diagnose the situation...

Did you do a hard drive format from a Windows format and was this an install from a Downloaded "Burned CD" of Ubuntu???...

Why didn't you go with Ubuntu 8.10???, you could have a corrupted install package and possibly need to re-install...
