    I have a question is there any way to reprogram Grub so that it gives you more time to choose the OS you want to boot or if there is a way to set a dif. OS other the Linux as a default unfortunetly even though I am trying to learn Linux i still need XP for work And I have a bad habbit of just turning on my box going to get something to drink or snack on and come back this habbit seems to a bad one now that my box will automatically go to linux if I do not choose windows right away
    Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you

    Take a look at /boot/grub/grub.conf I belive it is decently commented, so you should be able to figure it out. If you cant go
    Code:
    man grub.conf
    and read then manpage.
