I think it would help to first get a clearer picture of your setup related to your booting problem, so how about downloading the Boot Info Script to your Ubuntu desktop:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/bootinfoscript/

Then open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and do:

sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
That will create a "RESULTS.txt" file in the same directory from where the script is run, namely your desktop; please copy/paste the contents of the RESULTS.txt file to your next post, highlight the copied text, and click the pound/hash sign "#" graphic button in the Ubuntu forum message box so that the text will get "code" tags put around it. The results of that script will help clarify your setup and hopefully what the solution to your booting problem might be.

So I guess I'm not understanding your Grub problem, because you were booted into your Ubuntu 8.10 Ubuntu install on sda5 when you ran the Boot Info Script. Are you still getting a Grub error 17 on start up? Please explain your problem in more detail.

It's not a problem if Grub briefly flashes a message about loading stage 1.5. As long as you aren't still getting a Grub error 17 you should be fine now.
