I have Ubuntu 7.04 (Fiesty Fawn) on my system. I bought an 8.04 DVD. When I put it in the drive the first time, a menu comes up with a few buttons, one of them being "upgrade". I push "upgrade" and it objects, saying "unable to upgrade from Feisty to Hardy". Fine, then how am I to upgrade? Now when I take the dvd out and reinsert it that menu doesn't come up anymore.

Look, I backed up all my data. I'd be happy to wipe out my Ubuntu partition and reinstall 8.04 from scratch, but I don't know how to do that, especially without losing my other Vista partition.

I figured out what it was. I had to put in the DVD *BEFORE* booting, then I at least had the option of installing from scratch.
