You should add this at the end of the options which are passed to the
kernel at the boot proccess. Your kernels are after the "## ## End
Default Options ##" line, after that, were configured all items wich
grub displays on startup, and the options wich is going to be passed to
the kernel when the kernel boot-up. Probably, the kernel that you uses
is the first, so add that option at the end of the kernel line of the
first element, like that:

title		Ubuntu 8.04.1, kernel 2.6.24-23-generic
root		(hd0,0)
kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-23-generic
root=UUID=c7b4265d-4c68-4353-9371-e1dfde56289e ro ACPI=OFF
initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-23-generic

Note that ACPI=OFF must be in lowercase, and your line can be very
differnt. For editing that file, you can use kate (for example: kdesudo
kate /boot/grub/menu.lst)
