This is rather bad advice to recommend making any system files world
writeable. Permissions on system files do not generally need to be
modified, instead one should use sudo before the editing command to
gain root privileges, e.g.:
sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
If a gui editor is desired then use gksudo, eg.:
gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
