Grubbing about after a reinstall of Ubuntu Intrepid

After installation the thing made a mistake about which disk to boot from.

So during boot press Esc and then e for edit.

The root line on mine was:

root [HD1,0]

select this line and press e again. I deleted the 1 and changed it for a zero

Press enter then b for boot and it booted OK.

This edit is only good for one boot, so when up and running run in a terminal:

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

and in the last lines at the bottom change all the root entrys to the correct ones. Save and hope it all goes well next time
