Just for the records: The way to prevent this is very simple. Just add custom entries to menu.lst outside of the section marked by the following lines: ### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST ## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified ## by the debian update-grub script except for the default options below .... ### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST (never mind the mentionning of Debian, this has been copied from a Ubuntu machine) br, Dominik -- Dominik Meister My public GnuPG key is available at http://www.meisternet.ch/gpg.txt
