Thanks for your message . When I reboot my CentOS server I see the the menu
with a timer but I cannot enter to edit my boot kernel by pressing 'e' key .
Then the timer will expire and the boot process will begin . I want to be
able to edit my kernel through grub edit so I asked if I can try for
'grub-install /dev/hdax' w/o any harm on my CentOS server . Do you mean I
can edit my '/boot/grub/menu.lst' by vi the same as I want to do inside my
grub edit ? Are they the same procedures ? Please confirm.
