"append" is a liloism.  Tack on your "append" items to the "kernel" line
for each boot stanza in GRUB's menu.lst.

For example:

title Linux
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18 ro root=/dev/hda3 console=ttyS0

If menu.lst is autogenerated on your system, consult your distribution's
documentation to find out how to cause the auto-generated menu.lst to
contain that line.
