I had Ubuntu 10.4 before and after I have installed OpenSuse 11.3, It can't recognize Ubuntu 10.4 image while booting.
Please explain how can I get Ubuntu to show up while grub2 shows boot menu during startup..

linux-445p:~ # fdisk -l

Partition table entries are not in disk order


I think /dev/sda6 contains root partition for ubuntu 10.04. But, I am not sure of it. It's been a long time since I have installed ubuntu 10.04.

If it were /dev/sda6, can I edit the boot/menu.lst file and paste this in there:

#Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Ubuntu 9.04 2.6.28-11#

kernel  /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-25-generic root=/dev/sda6 ro quiet splash
initrd  /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-25-generic
