No, it isn't persistent. You should modify the file /boot/grub/menu.lst 
and save your modifications there. Then from the working system run the 

grub-install /dev/sda

in a terminal. Attention: In a previous mail you wrote something of hda* 
not sda*. So better check what the drive is called in the working system 
and if the partition names are hda*, the command would 
be "grub-install /dev/hda".
