Configuring Grub2

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I know that grub2 usually does this manually, however that is not an option. It's a long story. I have to manually configure my grub.cfg file(I know its not recommended) This is what I have: Code: menuentry "Fedora, linux 2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64" {         insmod lvm         set root=(haven-gate)         linux        /vmlinuz-2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/haven-gate ro quiet rhgb } menuentry "Fedora, linux 2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64 (testb)" {         insmod lvm         set root=(haven-gate)         linux        /vmlinuz root=/dev/mapper/haven-gate ro single quiet rhgb } My /boot is a logical partition (gate) in logical group (haven) My root is encrypted and is also part of a logical partition(central) in the same group I have a number of questions 1. The root is encrypted. I believe the cryptoroot function was used in grub, what about grub2? I could really use some help in this regard. 2. The second entry is a test. Is it legal to use /vmlinuz as a shortening for the the vmlinuz. I read somewhere it would automatically boot the latest kernel Any help with the above two questions would be greatly appreciated. Configuring grub correctly will allow access to Fedora for the firs time. Thank You (HowTos)
