To my surprise I found that the above statement is true. Could someone
explain why we need
/boot/grub/menu.lst and /etc/grub.conf both as soft links
Was this created by the "Department of Redundancy Department? :-)
Probably for the convenience of programs and users who expect to find the
config file in one of those locations.
That makes no sense. The menu.lst link and the grub.conf file are in the
same location. You reason makes sense for the link from /etc/grub.conf
but not for the other link from menu.lst.
grub.conf is the RedHat name for this file.
menu.lst is the upstream name
Users will look for one file or the other depending on their background.
