Question Possible to save grub config directly from shell?

I have a stumper. I have a Cisco Wireless Controller - AIR-WLC2006-K9, and it is working fine. It uses grub when it boots. However, it doesn't load a grub configuration automatically, and I need to set the grub configuration every time it is rebooted. This is what I need it to save:

root (hd0,1)

kernel /bzImage-primary root=/dev/ram ramdisk_size=32768 printk=yes console=ttyS0,9600

initrd (hd0,1)/initrd-primary

However, I don't see the menu.lst file anywhere in any of the normal locations. My question is this - is there somewhere I can possibly create or save a menu.lst file directly from the shell itself? It doesn't look like I can access the filesystem after the Cisco software is loaded up.

What is you're problem ?
Are you saying that menu.lst do not exist ?
Making a munu.lst nano /boot/grub/menu.lst or any other real linux text editor .
Of course as root
