Thanks, that solved the problem, given that I had identified it
as arising from Ubuntu not recognising ReiserFS.
I added the 'initrd=...' line & booted into Ubuntu successfully;
Gentoo doesn't require that line, perhaps because I use no kernel modules.
BTW the Ubuntu ramdisk needs 7,9 MB & Lilo issues a warning
(I didn't use your 'append/vga' lines).
From my bit of experience so far, Ubuntu does look good for a beginner.
