I'm trying grub2 (1.96) inside qemu, using Debian Sid.
Grub2 was installed as an upgrade from grub1 and everything went smooth.
The question is: and now how can i customize my boot loader? How can i
add my boot entry with my customized settings? What is the configuration
file that i can edit manually to make experiments?
If i open "/boot/grub/grub.cfg" a comment says that it is generated
automatically and so it may not be edited. To enforce this, it's set
read-only also for root. The same comment informs that the file is
generated from the "/etc/grub.d/" templates and from the instructions
found in "/etc/default/grub". The templates aren't conffile but scripts,
so not a comfortable place for a user to personalize (and understand).
The latter conffile seems only for variable definitions.
Man pages describes briefly only the specific command which they refers to.
No help found in "/usr/share/doc/grub-pc/".
Browsing "http://grub.enbug.org" doesn't help me much more (a little
howto for a simple configuration should be very helpful).
I feel a bit confused.
