In my opinion this was one of the biggest improvements needed in this day of mixed storage devices. I hope I am wrong on this issue, and just missed something.

well I just got grub2 up and running on my triple boot system. I have ubuntu 9.1, Windows Vista, and a version of OSX using chameleon’s darwin bootloader. Although I agree that grub2 is way more complicated than its legacy, it is definately doable. The people who are telling you to edit the grub.cfg file are full of beans, as a mismatch between the executables in /etc/grub.d and the .cfg seems to royally piss off grub2. you should edit the exe’s in ~/grub.d to make changes and then execute the command: sudo /usr/sbin/update-grub to make those changes flow through into the grub.cfg
oh also grub2 doesn’t understand uuid’s so while you are in between you should make sure to edit the menu.ls used by legacy grub to change all uuid’s (except where it says uuid=root) to the respective device and partition or else you will get an error 11 unrecognized device. good luck
