Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(0,0)


I have just recently installed Ubuntu Version 6.06 on my pc and after the second reboot I got the above error.

I have made no kernel upgrades and have installed no packages that would cause this.

On another forum someone said something about looking at the grub.conf file for clues, but i cant find that file. It doesn't seem to be in the boot/grub directory.

the conf file is /boot/grub/menu.1st
there are a lot of threads for this issue, a few of the similar thread links at the bottom of the page should get a solution.
for the section of the manual that seems to be most usefull, setting up grub from its own command line has always worked OK for me.
this seems to be a recent issue with ubuntu, it doesn't seem to be to hard to fix though.
