    Hi,
    Back again.
    Installed the "nano" software option.
    I can get the terminla to open with thre menu.lst
    I can paste the lines at the end of the list.
    I select save as default.
    Exit/quit
    reboot

    The ubuntu option is missing.

    Recheck the menu.lst and nothing different - what i pasted is not there any more.

    What could I being wrong?

    Best Regards
    Bill

    you are not saving file correctly.
    execute this
    Code:
    su 
    nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
    add Ubuntu Code and press Ctrl+X, Y and Enter key.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thumbs up

    Success.
    Got it - finally - thanks.

    final solution was getting the lines right , that is to say, not having line wrap.
    getting

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-16-generic root=UUID=5a3f01c6-01cd-4efa-98e
    e-44c92a023588 ro quiet splash

    all on one line was the answer, and not wrapping as shown.

    Cheers
    beat Regards
    Bill
