$ ls -la /etc/grub.conf
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Feb 15  
2006 /etc/grub.conf -> ../boot/grub/grub.conf

In other words, /etc/grub.conf is just a symbolic link 
to /boot/grub/grub.conf. You can edit either one and things will work. For 
consistency reasons, you should get in the habit of always using 
the /etc/grub.conf link - that's where almost all documentation asks you to 
make modifications.
