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
