Ubuntu and the family con't

I'm not sure what came over me.  I'm insanely busy right now, but I decided to go ahead and upgrade the family computer to Ubuntu 11.04.  I think my curiosity about the Unity desktop got the best of me.

Anyway, I started the upgrade last night before going to bed.  When I got up this morning, the computer was waiting for me to click through several prompts.  After about another 30 minutes or so, it was done.  After a reboot, I was rockin' with Ubuntu 11.04.  I tried to enable rotating cubes and wobbly windows with Compiz and suddenly I lost the Unity bar and panel.  Grrr.  A quick Google search turned up this forum post:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10734118#post10734118.  Look for the post by mc4man for the solution.
