It appears to me that the MEPIS install "owns" your GRUB. I will assume
that you pointed GRUB to the root partition of your Ubuntu install
partition when you first installed Ubuntu, rather than the MBR. That
being the case, you need to edit the menu.lst file in your *MEPIS*
install. In *MEPIS*, go to /boot/grub/menu.lst, and add the following

title Ubuntu at hda3
rootnoverify (hd0,2)
chainloader +1
