How to save changes in grub?
i am trying to edit grub from its main menu with e for edit. need instruction how to to make grub changes & save them. attempted to use edit fcn from main screen where gnu/linux & other OSs are listed. grub menu lists hda2 but now hdb2; made change - grub failed to save.
how do i change/save slice(partition)name. grub is my manager(for now dual boot). tried supergrub with no result, that is grub still attempts boot dvd-rom & fails, dropping into busybox with infamous error message: "... job control turned off." can use knoppix-cd to peek inside. but do not know how to change name of partition. read:can use ubuntu (edgy) dvd to change grub. ?how?
resisting for nonce using edgy dvd to reinstall ubuntu because would have to recompile intel pci modem (area over my head & don't swim well). (recently had send box back vendor to replace mainboard changing partition name.)
need instruction how to to make grub changes & save them.
PS if this is incorrect catagory, &c., please move for me. thanks.
