If you don't want to do that, then you can copy the files from the first install to the /boot of the second one or vice versa and specify the boot partition as the first one.
If you mount the Ubuntu filesystem manually, you can copy the files from /boot, which are different, then update /boot/grub/menu.lst to have the boot info.

If you want to copy the files manually, mount the other filesystem, if it is not already mounted (use the "df" command to see what is mounted). I don't know the partitioning information, so I can give you specific details. Depending on if you specified it when you did the second load, it could be listed in /etc/fstab, but most likely you did not do that, so you would mount it with a command something like "mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/root", but you need to create the directory "/mnt/root" first and you can use any name that you want.
Once it is mounted, you can go to that directory "cd /mnt/root/boot", look at the files with "ls" and compare that with what is in /boot. Look at the entries in /mnt/root/boot/grub/menu.lst and add those to /boot/grub/menu.lst. You will need to specify which one you want to be the default boot partition. To copy the files, use the command "cp". You may need to specify the real file instead of the link in menu.lst, so use "ls -l" to see what the real file is.
