Because Karmic uses grub2 by defauls and has no menu.lst.  It uses 
/boot/grub/grub.conf which should not be manually edited as was done
with menu.lst.  Since you are not aware of these changes in Karmic,
you'd be advised to google up on grub2, read the release notes, etc
before trying to modify grub.conf.  The applications that allow you
to modify grub.conf are located in the /etc/grub.d folder. I would not
attempt to modify the files in /etc/grub.d until you know what you are
doing as grub2 is nothing like grub legacy as far as modification goes.
If you tell the list just what you are wanting to do, someone may help
you out.
