I did F9 on boot. Edited the second line of the normal boot to add
XANDROSBOOTDEGUG=y. Backed out of that and booted from there. Once in
single user mode I "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt-system" then "vi
/mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst". Added the necessary information and ":x" to
save and quit. Shut down and reboot with F9. No changes made.
Not being to sharp with CLI I cheated and put the new kernel into the
/root/grub/ folder using file manager.
As I understand it /dev/sda1 and /device/sda2 file systems are merged
after boot so they appear as a single file system.
Where it actually edits what I have no clue.
Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.
