Ubuntu 9.10 No Kernel Found?

Hey everyone, I just installed the updates for 9.10 today and when I rebooted instead of bringing me to the black "choose which boot you want" screen (Ubuntu 9.10, Ubuntu 9.10 dev mode, etc) it just brings me to a screen talking about GRUB and stuff, and when I type boot it just says "No Kernel Found" and makes me type something else in.

Any ideas what could be causing this?


P.S. I'd love to get screenies for you but I literally cannot boot it at all :P

I have downloaded gparted but cannot run it! old brain cells! please help, thanks mk.........

mouse scroll settings

Need to know how to adjust scroll wheel down with Java program in Firefox browser.
I'm trying to use a genealogy extraction program which provides me with U.S. census data that I in turn help digitize for it's redistribution/use. It's written in JAVA for the most part and so far it works except for being slow and a little flaky/unpredictable and scroll feature on mouse is not adjustable in their menus.
The slow/flaky/unpredictable are a given in Java I presume and maybe more so since Linux is not supported by FSI.
One click of the wheel renders 7 lines of text scrolled in FSI. I've used Mozilla Firefox about config and settings in the menu system which changed the amount of lines scrolled in everything else but this Java program called family search indexing. Also tried other browsers Opera, SeaMonkey, and Epiphany.
