Thank you for your reply. I have an interesting problem, I installed a software package that I obtained via synaptic that alowed me to choose my boot sequence through a GUI. Well I changed it to what I thought was my normal Ubuntu installation, there were four options for Ubuntu, one was "generic kernel" and I can't recall the other three. What has happened is that now when I choose Ubuntu after a restart it will always go into a testing mode and never actually boot into Ubuntu. I purchased Vista Boot Pro in hopes of changing my selection to one of the other Ubuntu options but Ubuntu is not listed as an installed OS. If I can get back into Ubuntu I will use your info to edit from within GRUB! Ubuntu was installed from within Vista and Vista is the the first boot option, that is what I was trying to change as I have not been using Vista at all. This is the first time I have used Windows in about a month!
