Make a change in Grub permanent?


When I enter my bootloader Grub I have to go to the system I want to load and press e to edit. Then I add vga=792 in the end of one line to change the tty resolution.
How can I make this change permanent?

My distrubution is Debian Squeeze and there is no menu.lst in squeeze.

You are not meant edit grub.cfg directly,it is also a read-only file.Why?.
Because the next time update-grub is run all those changes you put in manually will be lost.
Grub2 uses /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d for it's configuration now and reverts to them when update-grub is run.
Read the guide Repo posted.
