*sigh*.  i'm aware of all that -- i was simply pointing out that, not
two paragraphs into his allegedly new-and-improved GRUB tutorial, karl
referred his readers explicitly to a file that simply does not exist,
with no caveat about how this relates to /boot or separate partitions
or anything else that would explain why, if the reader went looking
for that file, they'd never find it.

and, at this point, i think i'll just go back to spectating and being
amused.  trying to educate karl is sort of like, well, like this:
