Thank you for the suggestion. After discussing this with the original
author of the article, the following description taken from the RHEL
documentation has been added:

"The file name /etc/grub2.cfg is a symbolic link to the grub.cfg file,
whose location is architecture dependent. It is better to use absolute
paths when accessing to a file, as in the example above, especially
when repairing a system."
