I don't think that's the kernel that ships with 10.4. I have 10.4 on a dual boot:
bash-4.1# ls /other/tmp/ubuntu/boot
Something about that doesn't seem right. Is that possibly Ubuntu SERVER
that you installed? Ubuntu server doesn't default to a graphical login from what I understand. I think you should definitely download a new ISO.
