GRUB menu.lst Question


I use GRUB v0.97(Mandriva x64) and I have 7 boot choices listed on reboot.

There is in fact 10 in my menu.lst.The last 3 are not listed on the boot screen?I cant find any errors in the file.

Does GRUB have a limit?

Thanks

There is no mention in the Grub Manual about limits on the number of menu entries.

Post your /boot/grub/menu.lst. You don't see any errors. Someone else might.

Use the down arrow - or different font/FB specification.

I thought that might be your problem.

BTW, you can chain GRUB menu files, check out the configfile command. I suggest it because it might make your menu less cluttered.

This thread almost reads like a bash.org entry. Thanks for the chuckle.
