  Actually, I thought of the very thing when I wrote the command
"find". I haven't said, but the command was the first step to
configure GRUB automatically. Unfortunately, I was driven with more
urgent tasks after that time, so I forgot my original goal. If you
could work on this, I would be very happy.

  GRUB can save the last selected entry, but I guess you mean, GRUB
should save the last selected partition of an entry as well. Uggh,
that's not so easy, I think.
