Since I'm a noob, I think I'd better also ask advice on the proper way of removing the entry from grub. Is it only the boot/grub/menu.lst that I must edit? If so, which parts? I believe this is the one of the files I attempted to alter when I tried putting passwords on the Knoppix entry which royally messed up Grub :/
Is it only the boot/grub/menu.lst that I must edit?
Now you're adding a new dimension to the problem. If you have a recent version of Ubuntu and use its Grub bootloader to boot all your systems, there will be no menu.lst file but a grub.cfg file which you edit. If you installed Knoppix after Ubuntu and use the Knoppix bootloader with a menu.lst file to boot the different operating systems you need to install Grub2 from Ubuntu to the mbr before you format the Knoppix partition or your systems will be unbootable. So which systems Grub are you using?
Ubuntu was the last OS I installed, so it would be Grub2 from that OS that's running the show. Anyway, I bit the bullet and deleted the Knoppix partition and reinstalled both windows and Ubuntu. Now, for security measures.....
Also, I apologize for the delay in response...been a busy bee
