Probably your grub menu allows you to choose which kernel to boot. If it doesn't then you can edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to add the non-generic kernel to the grub menu.
As I understand it Ubuntu ships with a completely open source kernel (generic) and a second kernel (non-generic) which also contains some proprietary drivers. Which kernel you choose to use is up to you.
