GRUB 2 now default for new installations of Ubuntu

The default boot loader for Karmic Koala (Ubuntu 9.10) will be grub2, as announced by Colin Watson on Monday this week.

The existing boot loader (grub 0.97) will not be changed or upgraded on previous installations as changing the boot loader can be inherently risky.

If you would like to check if your BIOS works with grub2 I suggest following the instructions on the Grub2 testing wiki page.
