Hi I Need Help With GRUB Boot Loader.
im completely new to linux and i managed to make my computer a dual booting winXP and Fedora 5

the thing i want to change is that when i start my computer and grub loads, it only give me about 3 seconds to choose the OS i want to boot into.

can somone tell me how i can change it so say, 15 seconds or even make it so that it wont boot until i select my os and hit enter?

- thanks in advance <3Peng.

Hello:
Boot into FC5 and open a terminal and log in as root using
su -
yourpassword

then type
gedit /etc/grub.conf
and change the timeout=
to 15 or however many seconds you want
save and exit
