Added information on why system will not boot, edit of grub menu entry at boot time is quicker than a live CD boot and chroot in to fix.

I have multi-boot with a separate grub.jonathan-only.cfg which I access from grub.cfg entry so running grub standard update tools does not work for me. Additional information for the user on whats actually happening helps ...

ls of /boot before and after migration below ... actually because I had not removed vmlinuz26 symbolic link my old config would have booted anyway ;-)
