Go to the grub menu while booting, press e and edit the partition number and boot to your ubuntu installation. After booting, you can access grub (remember, it's grub2 from 9.10 onwards - check the documentation for editing the configuration file) config files and make necessary changes so that your root partition is identified correctly.

This link is much more helpful, I have tried most of settings to configure grub but still it doesn't supports, I think this link provided help is only applicable for grub2.

still my ubuntu not started, please let me know the grub2 free download link or web site.

You can use a live CD to install grub (grub2).

Enjoy

Before installing grub2, which I don't think is necessary to fix this issue, please answer the following questions.

1) Which boot loader are you using? You mentioned that you are not using grub2.
2) Are you able to go to the edit mode from the grub boot menu?
3) Can you boot into any other OS installed in the machine, from where you can access the ubuntu partition/files?
3) Do you have a live CD from which you can boot?

Can you post output of fdisk -l?
Your problem may be that you're trying to mount wrong partition.

Btw ubuntu 10.10 uses grub2 unless you opted to install legacy.
