I am very grateful for the solution. Since I am with Ubuntu Jaunty, my old Super Grub did not work. I have made a CD with the latest updated suitable for Ubuntu 9.04 with ext4 this had solved the problem. How ever for my knowledge improvement I have tried your solution with live CD. I have learnt to day : how to get into files with cd command from live CD. My backup menu.list is :menu.lst.backup". Let me thank you once again. Hope this thread will be helpful to many.
