    Configure grub through CLI


    when editing grub.conf i neglected to remove a comment from the line 'title....." on the linux part of the config... now i just see windows on the OS selector... i entered the CLI by pressing 'C', How can i edit ./grub/grub.conf through the CLI?

    p.s. i did backup the file, bit its too old to use now

    If you can't boot into Linux itself, which is the case, you'd have to use a Linux bootdisk to access the filesystem, edit grub.conf, and then reboot.

    At least that's the only solution I can think of.

    Second, what exactly do you mean by CLI?

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
