Problem using Mondo

I installed Mondo into Ubuntu 9.10 and tried to make a backup onto a DVD but got the attached error message. Can anyone tell me what I need to fix this? Thanks.

Nearest I can figure, Mondo is looking for your GRUB config file (your boot loader config) in the wrong place. Why it thinks your file is supposed to be /etc/grub.conf is beyond me, but maybe you should try running the command in the error message (ln -s /boot/grub/menu.lst /etc/grub.conf) and try it again. You should also pay attention to which version of GRUB you have installed. If you have GRUB 2 installed, then you config file would be /boot/grub/grub.cfg Let us know how it works out for ya

I just gave up and uninstalled Mondo. I've found with Linux that if something doesn't work, just forget about it.
