Here is my menu.lst  and output of "sudo fdisk-lu"

Question : Why was no other entry created other than memtest ?


P.S: Special Thanks to Shantanoo for suggesting "pastebin"

    I installed Ubuntu 8.10 from DVD that came with LFY Dec 2008.
    Once I select Ubuntu from Windows bootloader, I get grub menu.

    It has only one option that of "Ubuntu8.10,*memtest*"
    Is there a way to boot directly into Ubuntu w/o memtest ?

    Problem is similar to this :
    But the above thread doesn't have a solution

    BTW, I gave memtest a shot it was running for 48+ minutes (after
    which I gave up, it was still at 72% ) for 704MB memory
