I don't think it's related to this issue but it might help somebody out
there.  I was unable to boot Ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop.  The problem ended
up being with the pae enabled kernel when I switched to the none pae kernel
my system booted as normal.  I guess I'll only be able to access 3.2GB of my
4GB of memory too bad.
