What EXACTLY do you mean by "reboot and go to OS list"?
If you installed GRUB in the correct location then booting up should
automatically show the list of OSs on the computer with Ubuntu 9.10 at
the top.
The computer should then boot into m9.10 automatically unless you tell
it not to.
What EXACTLY is happening?
