Have been testing on bare and vm's, have been haing trouble with it.

with grub1 you edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to get some tweaks set 
permanently, or enter on the fly during bootup.

with grub2, tested both chainloaded with grub1, and with yum erase grub.
Though it found updated kernels', it never booted them unless
"grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg" was run manually.
It also requires edits in a number of files,
to get permanent tweaks instead of one simple file.
