The changes made by editing from the menu are for that boot only.
You have to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf (or one of the links to it) in
order to keep the changes.

One more thing - when editing grub.conf, you may want to remove rhgb
option - you will lose the pretty graphical boot, but you are not
seeing it anyway. (There is probably a way to fix it by setting the
VGA mode, but I leave that to someone else.)
