Not really a problem, but when booting into Fedora, I get

1. the grub menu
2. the countdown til Fedora starts (5 seconds by default)
3. A screen which says "press I for interactive boot" (which I enter)
4. The loading screen

Is there anyway to speed this up and change it into a graphical type boot?

If you are seeing the grub menu you are set up for dual booting and need the delay to allow you to access the other OSes.

Don't press "I", interactive boot is for troubleshooting.

Actually, Fedora 10 is going to do that - see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/BetterStartup.
