That's odd. My grub menu gives me a number of options that typically

	Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.10-5-686
	Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.10-5-386

and other options with '(recovery mode)' appended.

You can change this by editing (with root privs) the
file /boot/grub/menu.lst, but this should get updated when you install
the new kernel.
