This is all very good information, and I made use of it for months.

Then, recently, I installed the 14.04 level of Ubuntu-Gnome, and also 
Kubuntu in their respective partitions on my machine, and these very 
handy modifications went away, and I no longer remembered how to make 
those useful changes.

The information you supplied reminds me how to do it again, but if it's 
just going to disappear the next time I upgrade one of my partitions, I 
will probably just get used to hitting the down-arrow 9 times in the 
grub menu.
