If you install UBUNTU 9.10 using the default GRUB than you have GRUB2
that means that you do not have a menu.lst .
But you do have grub.cfg
And if you have GRUB2 remember that sda is still hd0 but the first partition is 1 so it starts with (hd0,1)
Why do have a unallocated space of about 20 G , if you allocated it you're partition number can change
