grub vs grub2
 
I just installed debian testing. It cames with grub2 and I as I see is more difficult then menu.lst in debian stable.
Why that?
Is not the idea to be everything more easy?

What are you finding more difficult?.
To make changes to grub2 you need to edit /etc/default/grub.
Then run update-grub afterwards to update /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Code:

ade@Pc1:~$ cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg
#
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
#
# It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub

Well, if I wanto to add some OS to grub 2, where I have to add it. In /etc/default/grub ?
Is the same way like in menu.lst?

Hello,

GRUB is not the same as GRUB2, there are some very distinctive differences. Have a look at these tutorials, they explain everything.
