Are you using Ubuntu 9?? and you have a separate hard drive with data? Grub isn't going to help unless you have an operating system on it. Were you going to attach it to the computer on which you have Ubuntu installed? If there is data on the drive and you attach it to the computer with Ubuntu, you should be able to mount the partition filesystems on the drive and at least check to see if there is data on it.
