Fedora (even FC12) has a very old GRUB 2.
update-grub has been long ago renamed to grub-mkconfig.

If you want to use GRUB 2 then purge the Fedora versions of GRUB Legacy
and GRUB 2.
You should not even save the original update-grub2 script. I don't think
it's any wrapper. It's our update-grub (now grub-mkconfig) just renamed
to update-grub2 so that GRUB Legacy and GRUB 2 can coexist on the
If then make it a real wrapper/stub by just calling grub-mkconfig
-o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

But I'm except of these rename changes not at all familiar with the
Fedora changes. So better look at the source rpm there if you need/want
any modifications they did to GRUB 2.
