A-ha!  Yes, you are indeed correct.  I suspect that my kickstart %post
section removed the symlink and created a new menu.lst file, whereas on my
other system menu.lst is still a symlink because I never attempted to
mangle it.  (I used a perl one-liner to modify menu.lst, and I've tested
that perl -pi does remove a symlink to make a new file.)

Yep.  I really like to see everything!  :)

Thanks for the pointer--I will be sure to use grub.conf in the future.
