Boot configuration utility for Kubuntu like OpenSuSE's Yast


Under OpenSuSE there's a section of the Yast configuration program for modifying the boot configuration. Is there something similar for Kubuntu? Of course it's possible to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, but that's much less convenient, partly but not only because superuser-mode editing requires some amount of ceremony and doesn't provide built-in configuration checking.

well even automatic tools can make mistakes you know.

AFAIK, no gui help for you.

but if you are having trouble with grub please post your question and we will try to help the OLDE way

btw did you leave opensuse because you found the time to make changes in gui was too slow?

Actually I'm running OpenSuSE on two machines and Kubuntu on two others, just so I can compare them. Each has its advantages.
