Can't you confirm it yourself by using the command on the kernel boot, either temporarily by editing at the boot menus or just by editing the /boot/grub/menu.1st file as root
--get a run dialog
gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.1st
--edit the menu.1st file and save change.
Alternatively open the file as root from the Nautilus file manager (right click file or directory /boot/grub ), enter your user password and make the change to menu.1st file
