Hello all:

Back when I was running Hardy, I had set up my machine to use the media direct button to start Windows and the main power button to boot Ubuntu.

I was able to do this using some variant of the instructions found here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/dell/182495-guide-how-boot-ubuntu-using-mediadirect-button.html

Given the changes in Lucid Lynx, the modification of menu.lst would no longer work. (See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1631732.) Thus, I'm wondering if anyone had modified this method to get the Media Direct button booting Ubuntu like it did before we upgraded to the superior Lucid Lynx.
