Edit the file /boot/grub/grub.conf. Change timeout=3 to timeout=whatever you like. The number represents seconds. The default= line determines what OS gets booted by default, starting with 0, which is the first listed OS. Comment out or delete the hiddenmenu line to see the menu at boot.

Or simply go to
System->Administration->Bootloader (if using gnome)
