Addressing the problem of editing and then saving changes to an
unsavable menu.list, change its permissions before attempting to do the
save, thusly

sudo chmod go+rw /boot/grub/menu.list
(If asked for a password, enter your user password).

This requires reversing your change afterwards, and therefore is actually
*two* commands.

Much easier, an less prone to error, to just type
gksudo "gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst"

( Also not that the file is "menu.lst" not " menu.list" ( a typo, I
guess , but a common one that produces a " No such file or directory" error
