Here is my grub2 file.
To change the many settings in grub2 edit the file
/etc/default/grub as desired. I would also save the original grub by
making a copy with cp grub grub.old in the same directory. If you change
grub then you need to run 'update-grub' as a root to use the changes.
The file /boot/grub/grub.cfg is automatically generated by
/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates from /etc/grub.d and settings
from /etc/default/grub. Looking at the files in /etc/grub.d makes it
impossible to be changed by hand. These are files written in bash binary
code which most of us are stupid about.
The file /boot/grub/grub.cfg can be modified by hand. You can
shuffle the systems being opened to suit your needs but when you receive
the next kernel update grub will fail. This is a temporary fix not advised.
The SuperGrub cd-rom I have is the only thing smart enough to
fix Grub2. You get this from: www.supergrub.com/ and put it on a cd-rom
with K3b which you can get with apt-get install K3b.
