When I turn on my machine it takes longer loading the grub boot menu then the OS i.e. a long time. I also wish to edit my menu.lst but I can't find it. As far as I know it shoud always be /boot/grub/menu.lst
Grub is installed on sda
/boot sdb1 ext4 165MB used
/ sda1 ext4 raid 0
/ sdb3 ext4 raid 0
Okay there is half my answer.I didn't know there was a grub2. I am using Karmic Koala. So I'm now thinking that it is a problem with grub2. There is a bug in grub2 which makes booting from the drive that doesn't have /boot on it makes it really slow. To fix that you can install grub2 on the drive that has /boot on it. sudo dkpg-reconfigure grub-pc
Instead of /boot/grub/menu.lst you can edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg. Apparently your not meant to edit this file but I did any way and everything is fine.
sudo cp -a /boot/grub/grub.cfg /boot/grub/grub.cfg.backup
sudo vim /boot/grub/grub.cfg
