menu.lst is supposed to be a symlink to grub.conf.  Odd that it's not.  You could either manually add the line from grub.conf to menu.lst, or rename menu.lst to something else and symlink menu.lst to grub.conf ( using something like:
ln -s ./grub.conf menu.lst 

Be careful, though, as a wrong edit or a missing file can cause your system to no longer boot.

Yeah, I always remove that line on machines that multiboot from grub (as opposed to multibooting to grub installed in the partition, which is the way this F-14 machine is set up, using a different bootloader).
