Editing Linux Boot Menu

I have learned to edit boot menu from gedit, in Linux.
It's like this, first open up terminal then type

su -c 'gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf'

After entering the root password I can edit boot menu time from changing the number on "timeout" and I can change default boot OS from changing the number on "default"(If you have a dualboot with Linux distro).

    As far as I know when you install windows after Linux the memory sector on the hard disk which keeps the GRUB boot menu gets erased.

    Why don't you ask it in a forum?
    e.g LinuxQuestions.org

    -I meant the way you got the menu from the pen-drive.

    -seems a good article. I hope it works. It should work for other distros too.

    Thank you for visiting once again :)
