I take it your grub is the old grub, ie, grub-legacy.
At grub prompt, grub>, type
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-10-generic root=/dev/sdax ro quiet
Important note: I am at hardy, can't remember what's the karmic kernel
is at now.
o Substitute "2.6.31-10" with what you have.
o (hd0,x-1) and sdax -- x is a real number for your karmic partition.

Of course once in Karmic, please update to grub2 and install/set to sda.
