GRUB2 doesn't have the menu.lst file.

How do I configure a boot script.

During boot, I hit E on the kernel image that I want to modify and make my modifications. But I would prefer to make the modifications in /grub.d/ folder and then run update-grub command.

Basically, I am including certain modules at boot time, using insmod, there are too many such modules for me to do it every time, and Im unable to edit those different looking scripts GRUB has currently.

I figured that /etc/grub.d/ contains files like


but they look like scripts that I should be careful when I modify. Is there a easier way, like using menu.lst to configure grub2
