You can just copy it from the domU you just installed.

there's no "extra" line. How does the kernel suppose to know where the
root filesystem is?

- install grub on domU. makes your life easier. The "extra" line above
should be whatever that comes after "vmlinuz-2.6.32-22-server" on
menu.lst, with the most important ones being "root" and "console"
- use pygrub/pv-grub

Although I'm not sure whether your version of pygrub/pv-grub would
have support for ext4 (which is the default for Ubuntu Lucid). I
usually get around this by having a dedicated /boot with ext3.
