2 Ubuntu Selections on Boot Menu

Hi Guys,

I am dual booting Linux and Vista on my laptop. Upon doing my sudo apt-get update and downloading a new Kernel, I now had 2 Kernel's on my first boot menu, EASY ENOUGH, I know how to fix that.

I went into synaptic and marked the older kernel for removal, and now the initial boot screen only has the Kernel and the Kernel recovery.

Here's where the problem comes:

If I select the Windows Loader, it takes me to the next screen where I can select "Windows Vista" or "Ubuntu," BUT, for some reason, it looks like this:

Windows Vista

Any idea why there are 2 Ubuntu's selections there?
