Yep, it was right there in the menu.lst file. It includes a template 
that Ubuntu uses when generating new entries. It starts out: 

## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified 
## by the debian update-grub script except for the default options below 

## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs 

## ## Start Default Options ## 
## default kernel options 
## default kernel options for automagic boot options 
## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z 
## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted. 
## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro 
##      kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro 
##      kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro 
# kopt=root=UUID=ec909078-a643-4f73-aeef-c4bb7aa69d28 ro
