Reason: more info provided
Your problem seems to be that you have your Linux on sda2 while Grub tries to boot from sda1. Open the menu.lst file you found with a text editor, search for the entry for your Linux distro and change the root (hd0,0) to root (hd0,1), then save the file and reboot.
Unity is not an OS, but a desktop environment that runs on top of Ubuntu. And if this really is a machine from the Windows 98 era then I doubt that it will run Ubuntu with Unity.
If you still want your issue solved then please post the menu.lst file.
