Hi!

You probably need SuperGrub : http://www.supergrubdisk.org/
This utility can restore/reset your original grub listing.

Best regards.

Also:

I am not familiar with Ubuntu 12.04, but check if it has its own grub creator facility. I believe all major distros have one.

It might not be ideal for launching your Puppy, but it could act as a stopgap for now. And then you can edit it to launch Puppy as well.

OR perhaps an even better solution:

Launch your Puppy CD and use Puppy's Grub4Dos utility. I believe it has a restore option. (Menu -> System -> Grub4Dos)

Best regards.

This procedure works well on my hardware. Every time I install a new OS other than puppy, I have to rerun Grub4Dos. Use your CD, booting into ram. It's nice to have a copy of your original menu.lst so you can replace the one created by Grub4Dos without much editing.
