BOOT MAMAGER AND UBUNTU

I have run both Ubuntu 6.06 and 6.10 for a short while, but would like
to make it permanent.
My Hard Disk (Samsung SATA) maps out like this: Primary C: (FAT32),
Primary (eCs-OS/2 Boot Manager), Logical (eComStation Bootable JFS). I
have left at least 40GiB Free Space for installation of Ubuntu.
On installation of Ubuntu, I am able to create a partition for
Ubuntu.....no problem. What, it appears, I cannot do, is to ask Ubuntu's
boot record to be placed inside the Ubuntu partition.
I can do this with Red Hat and Xandros by accessing eComStation through
the Boot Manager, finding the RH/Xandros partition and adding it to the
Boot Manager, then rebooting. If I try that with Ubuntu, all I can
access is GRUB, and have to remake OS/2 Boot Manager as the MBR, and
then I am unable to access Ubuntu. Unfortunately, I have to do this, as
I require Boot Manager to access eComSation. I have tried using the menu
system inside Grub to access Boot Manager, but this doesn't seem to work
for me. I have also mad the Bootable flag as Active....that didn't work
As I see it, allowing Ubuntu's Boot Record to be placed inside it's own
partition is the key. Is that acheivable? Is there something I've missed?
I look forward to your reply, and thank you in advance.
