I am now booted automatically into Ubuntu version 8.04 as I
desired. I had to replace the 0 with 21 to get here. You Must
count every line of the boot menu which includes kernel lines.
This means every time I get a new kernel for Lucid it will
break this setup! So it is not a good solution. But it is at
least a solution! now to improve on it, if possible.
