Actually, I'd love to know how to get access to the menu.lst file to edit it. I often use Puppy Linux, and I thought of putting Puppy's "frugal install" files into a directory, then editing menu.lst to give me the option to boot to Puppy or Zorin.

But, I can't find menu.lst in the Boot directory. Where is it located?

OK. I stumbled on an important fact: the bootloader is Grub2, not Grub.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 says that Grub2 does not use a menu.lst file, but instead has a configuration file called /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

Hmm, it also says that grub.cfg is not meant to be edited. I'll have to see if the "update-grub" command really will find my Puppy files. I'll be back.
