Crude way to figure this out:  Presuming that they don't all have
identical set-ups.  Note what your options are in the boot menu, see
which grub.conf file has the same ones.  That's the one being paid
attention to.


if you are still confused on this:
try adding cosmetic changes to the titles in both grub.conf
but different changes in each.
Then reboot
your splash screen will show you which one is being used.
