When I put "gksudo /etc/grub.d/40_custom" into terminal, I get this;

dave@dave-laptop:~$ gksudo /etc/grub.d/40_custom
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries. Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment. Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.

I am confused... Where do I add lines? I was expecting a file to open. This merely appears in terminal.

Thanks. And sorry for being so green at this.
