O, I was wrong. So /boot/grub/grub.conf is the real file with the
configuration content. Time for consulting the grub documentation.

$ ls -ll /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/grub.conf /etc/grub.conf
-rw-------  1 root root 884 24. Mai 00:38 /boot/grub/grub.conf
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root  11 30. Mai 2004  /boot/grub/menu.lst ->
./grub.conf
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root  22 30. Mai 2004  /etc/grub.conf ->
../boot/grub/grub.conf
