Good advice. Grub-install seems to pay attention to the 
file when doing the install. At least I have had to edit it to match 
what Grub will see when booting when I install to a USB drive I plan 
to boot off of using the BIOS boot from USB device option. Today 
turned out to be a busy day, so I was not able to get back before 
now. (Problems with a DSL setup when they changed to a static IP - 
everything had to be reconfigured on the customer's instead of the 
ISP changing the DHCP configuration. They forgot to write down some 
of the information they were given, like the name servers and 
gateway IP addresses.)

for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
