Right way to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst ?
I have been busy writing stuff about a few debian-based distros and Linux in general for newbies, and now I have this question:
Is it all right to edit boot/grub/menu.lst in this way? I needed to have WindowsXp boot first and appear first on the menu at boot time (I installed Ubuntu on a laptop which is shared among several people and on which WindozeXP was pre-installed).
I simply cut the lines referring to WinXp and added by clever Ubuntu, and pasted them just above those eferrinfg to Ubuntu, and I adapted the title. Here's part of the edited file:
## ## End Default Options ##
title Microsoft Windows XP Professional
# This is a divider, added to separate the menu items below from the Debian
title Other operating system: Linux Ubuntu
