Missing menu.lst file in Ubuntu

I am not able to find menu.lst in /boot.

During the Linux Kernel Compilation I installed the kernel using make install.
Next I created an initrd image.
I had to modify the Grub configuration file - /boot/grub/menu.lst which I am not able to find.

Any resolution for the issue?

I believe it has been replaced by /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
If I recall correctly, you shouldn't edit that file manually, check this page.
# 3  
Which Ubuntu release? The newer ones use grub2, which has retired menu.lst in favor of a generated grub.cfg, generated with update-grub

Thanks radoulov and pludi for the replies.
pludi my linux version is:
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
Release: 10.04
Codename: lucid
