- Append "reboot=b" to the line begin with "kernel" like this:

title Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-18-generic
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-18-generic root=UUID=9a0731d6-de74-40f0-8d90-acc0bc9e2264 ro reboot=b
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-18-generic

Thanks Scotty 581.
But I couldn't understand it. I am new to linux and don't know how to start the procedure u advised. This much I understood that it needs to be done in terminal command.
Please dear.. explain the step by step procedure for doing the same.
Thanks once again.
Bye
