However, with Virtualmin you can use the GRUB Boot Loader module, which contains quite a few options that deal directly with GRUB. This guide will teach you how to edit the global GRUB boot options within Virtualmin. Of course, you should already have Virtualmin installed on your server with Webmin access before proceeding any further with this guide. If you’re not certain how to do this, we have guides to help here:
