If you want to include a URL for upstream instructions until something is written:

Correct. If you want to include a basic instruction and URL until something is written, the following covers better than 90% of use cases and is Fedora 16/17 specific (other distros call grub-mkconfig not grub2-mkconfig). And as a fussy and mostly Mac user I can vouch that the F17 release-version has worked flawlessly so far (single, dual, triple boot tested), and produces a very nicely organized menu. Suggestion:

The following command will generate a new configuration file for GRUB, which will include entries for all installed kernels.

'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg'
