I just did a software update on my Ubuntu 9.10. After that it asked me to restart my system. Once I did that, grub opened a command prompt. How do I run ubuntu now?

Ubuntu 9.10 was installed 1 week ago using the Wubi installer. It is installed on the same partition as WinXP. I gave it 12 GB of space while installing Ubuntu. It was working good for a week. I decided to do the software updates this morning and now it's not even starting.

There is a solution here, but I would do a regular Ubuntu install from a CD. Wubi is slower and less stable.
