Multiboot with Windows/ Ubuntu 7.04/ Solaris - Problems with Xserver and No-Linux

Hi guys,

I have been using Windows and Ubuntu Linux 7.04 on dual boot on GRUB for a few months now, on an Acer Aspire 5114WLMi (laptop) with 2Gb ram, 120GB HDD and Ati Mobility Radeon X1600 with 512 MB hypermemory. Recently, i got a copy of Sun Solaris 10 which i thought i could install as a third operating system. But after installing it, i got problems with
1 - Xserver not found
2 - I seemingly lost my Linux installation.

The Xserver problem was there when i installed ubuntu, but i managed through with the installation by downloading the driver from ati website. But ati doesnt have a driver for sun OS. So, where do i get the driver from so i can activate the xserver?

Secondly, i lost my prized Ubuntu from the GRUB. Is there any way that i can possibly bring it back. The three operating systems are on three seperate partitions on the same harddisk. Give me some hint so i can get back the linux installment.

I posted this same questions on other forums to gain more notice.

Thanks a lot.
