I found this too.

I've just switched my development machine from FC6 (rawhide) to ubuntu edgy. FC6 has some nice grub graphics and a nice colour scheme. There is a fedora pixmap behind the menu and the menu looked great.

Ubuntu installed. I reboot to find a menu not dissimilar to the fdisk program you might have used with DOS 3.0

That was the biggest regression for the whole fedora to ubuntu experence for me so far.

Can you help with this problem?
