Dont panic!! Boot from Ubuntu Live CD or any Live CD for that matter.
Open a Terminal and enter the commands one by one:
sudo grub
find /boot/grub/stage1 (this will give an output where Ubuntu is installed,like (hdx,y), say (hd0,7)
root (hdx,y) [Change x and y according to the o/p of the above command]
setup (hd0)

Thats it! GRUB will be restored :)

Its definitely new for you :) It is used to restore/boot Windows/Linux. Its very easy but very powerful.

SuperGRUB disk is pretty old and I am using it for last 1-2 years. Its very handy in GRUB related problems and one of the must have CD for Linux users.
