Are you sure it's not installed? How are you booting ubuntu to get to terminal without grub?
In terminal execute:
sudo grub-install -v

That will show you the version of grub if it's installed.

Otherwise, instructions how to reinstall grub1 for 9.04 or before, and grub2 for 9.10 are here:

It seems you have selected grub not to be installed when installing ubuntu. It is automatically installed unless you select otherwise.
Did you install ubuntu 9.10 from its cd? Or another version of ubuntu?
