On debian I edited
But maybe that's different on ubuntu.
I also edited my grub menu.lst file...
The grub part I think starts it slightly earlier...

But it seems the rcS thing may be the most important.

to it.
But maybe you will need:

(Fill in the arguments correctly)

You shouldn't need to use sudo there...
rcS can do anything I think...
