2 many ubuntu's installed

Asked by DavidPMeyer on 2009-11-17

When I upgraded from 9.04 to9.10, 9.04 didn't go away. .I'm now triple booted along with Vista. Is there a straight forward solution to getting rid of 9.04 without harming 9.10 and Vista? I'm just starting and have very few files to secure.
