    You're sure? gksu is part of the default install...

    Then
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gksu
    (it will ask for your Ubuntu CD I guess).

    Then try again.

    If that doesn't work just try another editor...
    Code:
    sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
    or
    Code:
    sudo pico /boot/grub/menu.lst

    Code:
    # defoptions=

    Yes, there is one.

    Maybe it looks more like that:
    Code:
    # defoptions=quiet splash
    But, whatever the exact line is, there is only one beginning with
    Code:
    # defoptions=

    I checked, there is definitely no # defoptions. I even did the CTRL + W to search and it didn't find any defoptions.

    Sorry then, I guess Ubuntu 5.10 uses an old version of Grub.

    Check for line like that then:
    Code:
    # kopt=root=/dev/hda6 ro

    OK that sounds more familiar. What should I do with that line?

    1)Add "acpi=off" at the end, so it looks something like that:
    Code:
    # kopt=root=/dev/hda6 ro acpi=off
    2)Then save the file, and exit the text editor.

    3)Update grub:
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    4)Reboot

    It should work like that.

    OK cool I found it. I did what you said and am now rebooting.

    I got in, and still can't get on the net.

    Then try the solution posted here by "jamesr":

    Essentially check if /etc/network/interfaces is ok.
