Additions:
after you have edited 40_custom you will need to run update-grub in mint or so with grub 2.
you can also create a file called /boot/grub/custom.cfg and add your grub menu there. this file will be read by grub when booting and display that in the menu. (there is no need to edit 40_custom any more and you can edit this file from your puppy os and no need to boot into the main so with grub and run update-grub). i prefer this if i have puppy on hdd.

==== Important to Note====
Also another thing you can do, you will not need to use 40-custom and run "sudo update-grub" (remember to still need to stop os prober), is create the file. /boot/grub/custom.cfg this file will be loaded on bootup of computer and used over and above the mentioned 40_custom file. you do not need to run the command "sudo update-grub" from within the main os that grub 2 is using. you just add the info to the custom.config file and boot computer. great for when setting up puppy you can just go to the file add entries and your done. all from within puppy.

Additions:
If you want edit grub2 (the proper grub 2 way) then go to /etc/grub.d and editing the config files there. each file changes a different part of the boot loader. The main file you need to edit to add your custom files is 40_custom. To edit the default auto detected entries edit 10_linux.
You can also turn off the OS-Prober (OS-prober is the auto detect feature in grub 2). I have found this works and gives a more Grub feel but everything has to be done manually. (when you stop OS-Prober it is ok to change or remove unwanted auto detected entries from grub.cfg under #BEGIN /etc/grub.d/10_linux Remember to leave your os that the grub 2 is on). I also copied the original auto detected entries to 40_custom file so I could edit them there. saving time worrying how to format them.
