after booting the live cd open a terminal and try:
mount <root_fs> /mnt
mount <boot_fs> /mnt/boot #optional if /boot is seperate
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc
mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys
then run grub
Also please don't connect Ubuntu 10.04 to the internet. The botnets
are big enough.
