Well I am searching for grub.conf now. It doesn't seem to exist.
Instead I edited /boot/grub/menu.lst.
BTW the accretion description doesn't hold water. I got three entries
for one Slack partition on a brand new install.
Different kernels were specified. The last one was correct.
If I could figure out how to boot a Debian partition from Lilo I would
say goodbye and good riddance to
Grub. But I keep getting kernel panics.
