Seriously though, Ubuntu has switched to grub 2, and Fedora is still
using grub 0.9x.  It's great that Ubuntu has a GUI for grub since the
actual on-disk configuration is a complete mess.  Fedora's is quite
simple by comparison...  Just edit one file.

There is a system-config-boot that probably does some of what you want,
but, honestly, I've never used it...
