I had that with other installs of ubuntu, go through synaptic and search for
name linux and see if there are multiple kernels installed, you sometimes
have failsafe kernels in the install which show up on the menu, if there
are, clear them out and it will clean up the grub menu.

With the new Grub, the list file has been replaced with a *
/boot/grub/grub.cfg* file.. It gets overwritten regularly when a *
grub-update* is done. You can update */etc/default/grub.cfg* and then run a
*grup-update* to update the boot version of the file (Good article on the new setup)

<>Hope this helps :-)
