It works by looking in \fI/boot\fR for all files which start with "\fIvmlinuz\-\fR". They will be treated as kernels, and grub menu entries will be created for each. It will also create the initial \fImenu.lst\fR if none exists, after prompting the user.
It will also add initrd lines for ramdisk images found with the same version as kernels found. e.g. /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.5 and /boot/initrd-2.4.5 will cause a line of "initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.5 or similar to be added for the kernel entry in the menu.lst.
