Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If Suse was your last install go to YaST and select 'system' in the left panel then 'boot' in the right panel then find the edit menu list. It has been sometime and I am not near my home computer so I may miss a step in my directions. If ubuntu is not listed then the easiest would be to open terminal and type the 'fdisk -l' command and post it so that we can see the layout of your hd. If there is anything you do not understand please ask.

In your first post, you indicate you get a message that a file is missing, which file?
You have an entry for Ubuntu in your posted Opensuse menu.lst file so the missing file is the problem. You might try removing the configfile line for Ubuntu by putting a hash mark (#) to the left of it so it looks like:
immediately below that line enter "chainloader +1" (w/out quotes) and see if that works. If not, let us know which file is missing.
