I am still new to Ubuntu but I am having a problem when booting into Ubuntu 10.10. When I turn on the computer, after a few screens go by I see a boot manager giving me the option of:

1: Earlier Versions of Windows
2: Windows 7
3: Ubuntu

All OSes are working with no trouble. But when I try to boot into Ubuntu, I get another boot screen that states:

1: Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.35-28-generic
2: Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.35-28-generic (recovery mode)
3: Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.35-22-generic
4: Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.35-22-generic (recovery mode)
5: Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda2)

When I choose 1 or 3, quite often it doesn't load up the startup GUI, it loads up some command line crap that I don't understand yet, where I type in reboot until I finally get Ubuntu loaded, this happens several times then finally works to the point I can log in. What could be going on, my install is inside Windows 7, not a full install if that matters.
What is the difference between line 1 and 3?

OS: Windows XP Pro triple boot with Win 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu 10.10

Update: I tried booting up Ubuntu using line 1 three times and finally went to line 3 twice and Ubuntu finally booted.

I just tried to login to Ubuntu again and ran into this snag again, I hit Enter for Ubuntu then Enter for 2.6.35-28, it takes forever to load then when it does I get this, or something close:

- Boot Args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- check rootdelay= (did system wait long enough)
- check root (did system wait for right device)
- missing modules (cat /proc/modules; 1s /dev
ALERT! /dev/sda6 does not exist drop to a shell

then it goes on to say something about Busybox v1.15.3, then a command type line saying:
(initramfs)_

All I can do at this point is type help or reboot and try to get into Ubuntu again. This time I was able to see the GUI after the second attempt. I am logged into Ubuntu now. But why does it take anywhere from 2 to 5 boot times to get the GUI loaded?
Now that i am loaded I went to terminal and typed startx enter, I get:
X: user not authorized to run the X server, aborting.
