gfxboot problem on new repo packages


In the past you only had to uninstall grub, install the grub-gfxboot do some sudo grub in the terminal followed by find /boot/grub/stage1 and so on and voila, you would end up with a nice poise graphicall GRUB. But it seams that with the new grub-gfxboot the usual grub command in the terminal doesn't work anymore. I've edited my menu.lst properly and I even tried using sudo grub-install /dev/sda command, though this was without any error still my grub didn't improved. By the way I have an message archive in /boot/grub folder, and I've generated a menu.lst file with gfxmenu /boot/grub/message in it. So how could I have an OpenSUSE like GRUB with these new packages ? By the way my root linux partition it's ext4 if this matters in some way.

Anyway, how can I customize my grub so I could position my boot entries wherever I want on the screen and get rid of that awful square margins specific to grub ?
