Did not reply to you earlier because I do not understand your situation 
and I was hoping that someone else who does answer you.

What is this multi boot tower and is there any link you can provide so I 
can understand it? And how are the kernels upgraded (to this boot)? I 
googled but results were zilch.

Customary choice as in menu entries of kernels or choice to use grub2 or 
grub-legacy? Did you do a sudo upgrade-from-legacy thingy in jaunty?

What is jaunty grub and hardy grub? (grub-install -v)
Are there menu.lst and grub.cfg in Jaunty and Hardy? (/boot/grub/)
What grub is set to sda (mbr)? (if this is of relevance)
Is jaunty /boot on ext4?

Hope this is something we can resolve or at least something new I can 
learn. Hope to hear from you but I will be away for at least 3 days from
