Hi zmaster

You'll usually find instructions for an extension in it's "info" file, 
eg: http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86/tcz/grub2.tcz.info

Obviously choice is yours, but I wouldn't put grub2 in "Onboot.lst" for an extension you'll use maybe once a year or two.
typically onboot is for frequently used extensions
Maybe
1. Start App Browser
2. Select grub2 and install it "Download and Load"
3. Select leafpad and install it "onboot"
is a better choice??

good luck
