Try these steps :

1.When you see boot menu,highlight the name of operating system you want to boot i.e
Ubuntu 8.10, kernel 2.6.XX-X-generic

2.Press 'e'.You will see 3 lines as ,

root (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.XX-X-generic root=UUID=0ee25dbb-0672-4574-ba1a-2e51f83b0820 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.XX-X-generic

3.Highlight second line i.e line kernel /boot/........

4.Again press 'e'.Now you can edit that line.Go to end of line and remove two words 'quite' and 'splash'.Press 'ENTER'.

5.Now press 'b' to boot.

Let me know if it works.
