Help with subdivide needed

I just started using Blender.
Watched almost all tutorials and just finished the one with subdividing. But there is one problem (when i try it myself). In the (video) tutorial there is a menu of subdivide below Autosmooth. But that is not in my blender. I got Blender version 2.40.
Could someone please help me ?
Help would be appreciated.

Search the forums. Subdiv is now a modifier

Joghurt speaks the truth :wink: . Under your edit options (f9) you should see a ‘modifiers’ tab. Click ‘add modifier’ and you’ll see subsurf listed in the subsequent dropdown menu.

Also… be sure to upgrade to 2.41 before starting any serious projects- it has some neat new features.
