I agree with you. GRUB is a great tool, and I also believe that it's in 
a state of transition. Using GRUB you can do what you want from the menu 
except boot your own LFS. :) And, you're right about the kernels. I've 
spent the majority of two days configuring kernels. yuk. I just wish I 
knew C so that I could understand what's going on at the dev level of grub.
