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.

you could do an ls /boot/grub/ and post the results here but I am guessing the like canditate file to be editted in it's place will be /boot/grub/grub.conf the two files are often very similar or identical and perform similar tasks.
Do you mind doing an "ls /boot/" and pasting the results here, also if it exists, "ls /boot/grub", it sounds like you have done something to your grub bootloader in a strange way. Can I also confirm you are using grub and lilo.
Just to check, how many HDDs do you have in your computer, if it's more then one it might be worth checking the output of the mount command, you could have installed grub to somewhere other then /boot (a strange idea I know, but could be possible)
No I have only one hard drive in my laptop.
Windows is in 1st partition and Ubuntu in 2nd.
These are the result of those two command you said:
root@pc-laptop:/boot/grub# ls /boot/
But what do you mean by "edit the grub.cfg file and update grub."
I know where the "grub.cfg" file is, but what should I write on it?
How can I do that. In that section you mention I could not see
how to edit and what to edit.
Sorry for being so elementary.
(Oh, My professor is calling me. I will come back in half an hour, sorry for inconvenience).
