Replaced by grub.cfg . But Grub2 is run by scripts in /etc/default and
/etc/grub.d .

If you don't want to study partially existing wiki instructions: make a
menu.lst to include all the settings you would have use in Grub-legacy and
reinstall Grub2. It will configure from menu.lst .

Or just install Grub-legacy.

Grub2 is the recommended default but still considered under development. So
was legacy I guess, it never reached V 1.0 .  However, legacy still gives me
control over the look of an extensive menu and a background image which I am
accustomed to.
