No, menu.lst just affect second part of the bootloader (stage2), whereas 
/boot/grub/install.sh installe the firsts part (stage1) on the MRB (or 
elsewhere). That's one of the main interest of grub vs lilo.

Also, if you just have to boot once, you don't have to first boot on 
some rescue system to change menu.lst, there is an interactive shell 
where you can freely set every parameter needed to boot.
