OK, do you know how to boot to Linux and open a text editor? I believe Ubuntu uses gedit.

If you can find the icon in the menu to open gedit, click on 'open file' and navigate to a file named /boot/grub/grub.conf or /boot/grub/grub.cfg [your system will have only one of these, but I don't know which one. It depends on the GRUB version.]

If you cant figure out how to do that, try opening a terminal window, and paste these commands into it one at a time, then press enter:

gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf

gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Copy the file whose text comes up [only one will] and post it here for us to see.
