    Default Multiple OS Boot menu

    Hi,

    I recently installed Linux Fedora Core 7 on my system. I also have Windows XP. Now when i boot my system the boot loader gives me 5 seconds to choose the OS . If i don't select any of the OS, by default the systems boots in Fedora core 7.

    Can someone tell me how to increase the time to make the selection? Currently its set to 5 seconds which is too less because by the time my monitor actually starts displaying the selection time would have elapsed and Core 7 would have started booting.

    2 ways to do this:

    1st way:
    1. Open /etc/grub.conf
    2. Find this line:
    Code:
    timeout 3
    3. Change 3 (in my grub this is number 3 but usually i think itīs 7 or 9) in any other value. Remember that these are seconds (so 3s, 7s etc.)

    2nd way:
    Folow this link:
    StartUp Manager - Info

    Folow the manual and install that app. ITīs ok but i prefer 1st way. ItsEasier and faster :)

    Im not really shure but the terminal command to edit grub.confg would be

    cd /etc/
    gksugedit grub.conf


    right?
