Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a number of partitions on my hard drive, and I like to change my linux installs now and then. I recently put Kanotix on the first partition and it saw what was previously installed and GRUB added it to the boot list, all was fine for awhile.
Today I added a new install, and I assumed that I would just add it to the GRUB menu list so that it could be booted. I was surprised when I got to the /boot/grub folder on Kanotix and there was no menu list.
So my question is how do I adjust GRUB in this situation? I have no doubt missed something and I am at a loss. I have looked at a lot of install notes on line with no success. I could use some help.....
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new -
To find where Kanotix is parking it's grub menu.lst (or equivalent grub.conf), use the find command (as root to be able to read the grub config file) to search for some keyword from the menu.lst.
find /boot -type f | xargs grep vmlinuz
That should turn up all the menu entries in your grub conf, and give you the path and filename in which they are found If you don't find it in /boot that way, try looking at /etc/grub/conf to see if that is where Kanotix put the grub config with menu entries.
