Looking for Kernel Parameter File

During the install of Red Hat 7.3, there is a prompt to enter parameters that can be passed onto the kernel.

My question is, when the parameter is entered, what file does it write to???

At one point I entered a parameter that was incorrect causing an init.rd error upon post install boot. If I know what file the parameter was written to, I can just edit the file, and then it should boot normal....

Thanks for all your help...

It will write to your bootloaders config file. eg "grub.conf".

as to rm -rf /

I believe that would remove my root directory recursively and forcefully. Do not want to do that...

I do not want to do that.

thanks for the info...grub.conf rings a bell. I have done this before, thanks again
