If you'd prefer to maintain your own menu.lst/grub.conf, *buntu can be 
configured that way.

Otherwise, read the documentation (which is in the file) to understand how 
it is generated.

Read the comments above that.

Debian (and derivatives like *buntu) use comments inside in 
menu.lst/grub.conf to generate the AUTOMAGIC KERNEL LIST.  Commands to grub 
are non-commented.  Commands to the rebuild script (/usr/sbin/update-grub, I 
think) are singly commented and appear in a specific section of the file.  
The rebuild sciript will also ignore anything doubly-commented (which is why 
many of the "stock" comments in that file start with '##'.

(You don't think that?  Come up with a better system.  Debian is always 
looking for more contributors.)

If people would actually *read* what is presented to them, there'd be 
significantly fewer support issues worldwide.  No wonder RTFM and STFW have 
been abbreviated.
