Kgrubeditor is a tool to view and edit the menu.lst file of the GRUB boot manager. It offers many features and it is the perfect solution for those who want to change the way GRUB works, without messing with the menu.lst file.
With kgrubeditor,you can add,remove and edit entries in grub list,and change grub timeout,background image(this maybe for Grub 2,I didn’t test it in old grub),make a backup,repair grub if broken,and so forth.
