    A good linux command for this situations is "locate":
    Code:
    locate menu.lst
    It will return a list with all the directories containing a file named "menu.lst".
    Run "man locate" for more information.

    Yet another way to find any file on your system:
    Code:
    find / | grep {filename}
    such as:
    Code:
    find / grep menu.lst
    . You can make the search go faster if you know approximately where the file is, such as
    Code:
    find /root | grep myfile

    Thanks but there is not a folder with name "grub" in "etc/default"
    i just found a grub file in that location that names "grub" and i changed but nothing changed!!
    and when i enter "locate menu.lst" they show one file that names "grub-menu.lst" and it's not about it.
    Can you help me?

    I dont like to repeat myself but damn some people dont listen the file your looking for is grub.cfg

    Thank you maverik for stating the obvious :::
    No menu.list in GRUB2...Please read more about grub2, and the 2 files that configure the options. No menu.lst in grub2...
    who is letting these posts through because its not a backtrack dev as they would have marked the tread as solved after the correct answer was given
    is the moderating done by auto script i.e check if miss use of language and let it through or are mods actual checking them ??

    nano /boot/grub/grub.cfg
