How do you make boot parameters permanent in Sugar?


I have a generic monitor which has problems with many Linux distros. We can boos Sugar on a Stick v2 by pressing <tab> at the Sugar splash screen and adding the boot parameter "nomodeset". I'm handy enough to do this, but my wife, well, not so much. So is there a way to make that boot parameter permanent?

add them to the kernel line in /boot/grub/grub.conf

Sugar is the name of the desktop environment - the OS is fedora 11.
