    OK, So I currently have an AOA-150 with 120GB drive which I set-up dual boot a year or so ago. It dual boots to either Linpus or Vista via the Linpus grub.conf ( I got the instructions I think from here:

    I want to get the latest Ubuntu 11.04 build on this as a third boot option. If this work OK I may ditch the Linpus or Vista build at some point.

    So I've used Gparted on a USB drive to setup up three extended Logical Partitions (sda5, 6 and 7).

    I then loaded Ubuntu s/w via an external drive with
    /boot on 100MB /sda5
    Swap on 1GB /sda6
    / on the 40GB+ /sda7

    When I was asked for the bootloader location in the Ubuntu install gui I chose /sda5 (out of complete ignorance)

    All fine at this point.
    What do I have to get the /boot/grub/grub.conf startup menu to see and start ubuntu?? Or is there something else I need to do??

    Thanks in advance
