Re: [vox-tech] which kernel gets loaded?

I'm not sure how to uninstall grub2 and be rid of the chainloading entries (i assume a simple apt-get will do), but what you really want to do is set up the kernel options you want in GRUB 2 by editing in /etc/grub.d/10_linux, making sure that works, then running upgrade-from-grub-legacy to switch over to GRUB 2 completely.

I upgraded a Debian system from lenny to squeeze, but it doesn't look

am passing it. I need to tell it to have more serial console uarts
by appending 8250.nr_uarts=8, but it looks like it is chain loading
grub 1? How do I fix this? I attached menu.lst.
