This is what my setup looks like:

title           Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-14-generic
root            (hd0,3)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.28-14-generic root=/dev/mapper/rootvolume ro no_console_suspend
initrd          /initrd.img-2.6.28-14-generic

You should remove quiet and splash to prevent message-hiding.

You might also want to know break=top which will launch a debug shell before the initrd does anything, the other breakpoints you can examine by uncompressing and then cpio extracting the initrd in to another folder on your hard drive.

However it would probably be easier to chroot into your other install and fix anything that's stopping you there if the actual boot-arguments aren't the cause.

turning into

       linux   /vmlinuz-2.6.28-13-generic root=/dev/mapper/cryptdisk-karmic ro
 quiet splash

the latter "root=" should obviously be changed back to root=UUID=e1b20064-8204-4150-be5e-83bd537defc8

And I'm not sure about vga=773, that might be something that GRUB messes with, so it might be good it left that out. (try without. If it's still broken you can try with it.)
