Kjetil, Noop's suggestion is a good one. But you can also do the above 
at text mode without going to recovery mode too, (that is, if you cannot 
get to the grub menu to go to the recovery mode).

Did you override your 9.10 when you install 10.04?
If you need to check, please output
sudo fdisk -l
sudo blkid
and your /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Good luck - Goh Lip
