Hi
Thank you for reading my post
I was trying to install GFX grub based on
http://tuxenclave.wordpress.com/2008/01/18/how-to-install-gfx-grub-in-ubuntu/
and everything was going ok until i was trying to perform


sudo grub
find /boot/grub/stage1


It looks like that sudo grub does not works in my ubuntu installation :(

Can some one please let me know what should I do?

will I be able to restart my computer without facing boot problem?

here is the content of menu.lst that I have now:



## ## End Default Options ##
gfxmenu /boot/grub/message.ububrown

root (hd0,3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=df9e01b9-f029-43a1-92a7-e0dde840c15b ro quiet splash vga=792
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet

I think you will find your answer on this blog:

Unfortunately doesn't work with Intrepid because Intrepid formats its ext3 partitions to use the newer 256 byte inode size file system standard, rather than previous versions of Ubuntu that used a 128 byte inode size.
