    Hardy Triple boot with XP and Vista Error 15 on boot

    Hello can you help me please I have 4 Drives on my PC C,D,E,F.
    C = XP Professional
    D = Data
    E = Data
    F = Vista Premium
    I ran the install CD from within XP and set it to use 10Gb on C drive. On rebooting I was presented with the following boot options 1:XP, 2:Vista, 3:Ubuntu.
    Both windows options function normally but selecting Ubuntu gives an error 15 file not found.
    I should say that the default OS is Vista.

    I can see that you're new in Ubuntu (It's your first post)
    First: Insert and run your Ubuntu CD and select the LIVE mode
    Second:
    -Open a terminal (Type Applications-Accessories-Terminal)
    -Type in the terminal sudo grub
    -Type find /boot/grub/stage1
    -Appears an output
    -Type root (hd?,?) ? is the output
    -Type setup (hd0)
    -Type quit

    Then go to /boot/grub/menu.lst
    edit the file menu.lst
    at the end write:

    ### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST

    # This is a divider, added to separate the menu items below from the Debian
    # ones.
    title Other operating systems:

    # This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for an existing
    # Windows installation on /dev/hda1.
    title Windows 95/98/NT/2000
    root (hd0,0)

    Why you installed Vista and XP?
    There are many problems on dual boot's with vista and ubuntu
    Enjoy your new operating system
