I retract that statement because I'm not sure of your grub version.

There is no equivalent.
That is only available in Debian (derived) distros - it is not part of the generic grub package.

You need to manually update the menu.lst in need - as per that document you linked.

Suse 11.2 uses grub legacy. If you can boot Suse open YaST and go to System in the left panel and then go to bootloader in the right panel and then you can update grub menu from there.

Thanks for response, I do remember now, I had a dual boot of Mint and Suse in my laptop and also
I installed Mint on my external harddisk attaching it to my laptop! And the Grub got missing, I
remember searching Google and every where getting told to edit menu.lst!! I even had this thread since
I couldn't find menu.lst in Mint which is Debian based!

Larry,
I'll have to update/install Grub when my system doesn't boot and in that case I won't be able to
fiddle with yast!
