missing stuff in particle system context, 2.57b?

I’m trying to follow this tutorial (made in 2.49b) using 2.57b. When I select “hair” as particle system type, many options seem to be missing. For instance, the only options in Emission tab are “Amount” and Hair Length". I don’t have the “Random”, “Even” etc buttons like in the tutorial. Is this done differently in 2.5x? tHx

Have you selected the Advanced tickbox for more hair settings ?

Doh!

Edit: kind of a pointless tickbox if you ask me but I’m no expert.
