Reading http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#Preset-Menu
I've learned that you can embed Grub configuration files into Grub. The 
question is...

A) Is the configuration file embedded into stage1 or is it embedded to 
other place?

I want to be able to load this configuration file by default:

default 0
timeout 2
title 1st OS
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title This means either Grub has not been correctly installed
title or that you have deleted your Linux (or other OS) installation
title however you will be able to boot Windows or other 1st OS

And another question is...

B) Is there any size limit for the menu.lst size?

As you might imagine I want to include this menu.lst file by default with 
Grub Super Disk... so that if someone deletes /boot/ folder where stage1 or 
stage2 are... he will still be able to boot Windows.

I think, that currently, when we delete /boot/ folder... they have grub> 
and that's it.
