Thanks. That's looking very tempting at the moment. So far, I've not
It would not be unwise to switch to Grub 2 (the new Grub that's slowly
becoming the default in many distros). It stores its configuration in
/boot/grub/grub.cfg (not in menu.lst anymore) and is every bit as
capable as grub legacy and then some (for example, it can boot some
live CD.ISO images -- such as Ubuntu -- from your hard drive; also,
Grub splash images are fairly easy to implement; and pre-existing
systems on your hard drives/partitions are detected automagically and
added to the Grub startup menu; it's also more consistent IMHO). The
configuration is not handled by directly editing the grub.cfg, but by
modifying the scripts in /etc/grub.d and then running update-grub.
