How to modify boot menu


I have Fedora 16 32+ bit as the only OS on my hard drive at the moment. I want to modify the boot menu that appears at the boot time to change that default selection time of 5 seconds that allows one to choose as to which version to boot. Earlier I used to modify /boot/grub/menu.lst, if I am correct. Thanks

Re: How to modify boot menu

With grub2, you now edit the file /etc/default/grub
Find the Line: GRUB_TIMEOUT=n
..and change it to however many seconds you wish.
Then, after you've made that edit, again as root, do:

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Or you can simply ignore /etc/default/grub and directly edit /boot/grub2/grub.cfg.
