You're not supposed to make any changes to grub.cfg:

$ ls -alch /boot/grub/grub.cfg

-r--r--r-- 1 root root 8.3K 2009-10-27 17:08 /boot/grub/grub.cfg

You make your changes the 'source' /etc/grub.d directory and trust
udate-grub to rebuild it and propagate your changes.

As to what goes where in /etc/grub.d, there's a README file.

I think that the general idea is that 00_header & 05_debian_theme appear
to be the global setup, 10_linux is where you make changes relative to
the kernels on your local partition, and 30_os_prober and/or 40_custom
your other systems.
