Slightly different are the syntax changes between versions of GRUB 1.xx that 
caused even grubby to puke. The difference in syntax between 0.97 and 2 are 
monumental, unless you're a scripting nerd. If you're a regular user, the whole 
linux boot loader experience is offensive. It's extraordinarily user hostile.

Simple is pressing and holding an s key during boot to get single user mode.
