    Angry missing wubilder/ cannot find grldr

    Not to sound like a total newb with Ubuntu, but i went thru the installation process. Everything worked fine until i robooted and selected to run Ubuntu. An error msgs pops up instantly saying "try hd 0,0 no wubild, try hd 0,1 NTFS5: 2 try hd 0,2 no wubild found. It also says cannot find grldr in all drives. Press ctr+alt+del to reset."
    Now ive been thru most of the forums and its seemed to me that the problem was i didnt have a wubildr and wubuildr.mbr copied in my C:drive, so that was the first thing i checked. they were both there...
    I was then told to wait on reboot, and after a minute or 2 it would correct itself. sadly it did not.... ive tried this a few time now, but to no prevail.
    Upon closer reading of the forum sayin to copy wubildr files to c: drive, i noticed ppl were sayin to copy and paste "all 3" into c: drive. What is the 3rd one??? cuz all i have i c:drive is wubuildr and wubuilder.mbr.
    Idk what the problem with this is, but Im sure one of u can help. Please note, that i dont understand most of ur lingo, and have a very basic gateway computer to do all this. very good at following step by step instructions. Oh, also i am running ubuntu thru wubi, and not using a cd nor a floppy drive. Any info fast and simple would be a great help. <3

    Copy wubildr from the \ubuntu\winboot directory and put it in C:\wubildr
