Hi, I recently got a NEW COMPUTER and it has WinXP and Ubuntu on separate hard drives. I just installed Ubuntu and everything seems cool but I can't find my menu.lst!!!! If I go into /boot/grub there is no menu/lst in there! I want to edit out some kernel choices and change the color of boot loader screen like I did on my other Ubuntu installation on my old computer. PLEASE HELP!!! I am confused because I used the same setup Ubuntu 8.04 disk on new computer as I used on my older computer. I did update the system after installation. Do you think the updates changed where menu.lst lives now????:(

The file is "/boot/grub/menu.lst":

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

OK I will try that when I get home today. It just seems weird that it is not where it should be. Bob
