I think you need to use a newer version of GRUB2 first off. This is a 
prerelease version and is quite old.

Directly editing the isn't advised, it's better to make the changes in 
/etc/default/grub and then running grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg which 
reads the /etc/default/grub configuration, and produces a new grub.cfg from 

Also note that documentation applies to GRUB 2.00. There are many, many changes 
from 1.98 to 2.00.
