    [ubuntu] Re: Help! Messed up installing LAMP

    I seemed to have fixed it by reconfiguring (resetting root password for MySQL). I did so by entering this in the terminal:

    *Sorry. I should have said that the command I found will write random data THREE times, not four. The zeros ARE the fourth pass. Sorry.

    So basically it's purely aesthetic? You can just somehow get GRUB to show like 2 list items?

    I'll research it but does anybody else know how to do this?
