You can try booting system manually. When GRUB appears at system
startup, press "c".
grub prompt will appear
grub> root (hd0,5)
grub> kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27 <press tab to autocomplete> root=/dev/sda6 ro
grub> initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27 <press tab>
After booting, you can edit /boot/grub/menu.list
put these lines
title Ubuntu 8.10
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-x-xxxx root=/dev/sda6 ro
initrd initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.27-x-xxxx
