Configure Dual Boot File
« on: June 05, 2005, 05:43:19 PM »
I currently have Windows 2003 and Linux installed on my server.  I press the
arrow-key to choose my OS while booting up.  But the bootup menu is popping
up very quick, I just want to know which file control the time for bootup manu
on Linux.

Thanks,
Lucas

Mosty linux uses two bootloaders .. 1. LILO , 2. GRUB .

Lilo uses /etc/lilo.conf file for its configuration and grub uses mostly /boot/grub/grub.conf !

There if you have either of bootloader then you can set timeout in those config files.

Both files have "timeout" and they are different too.
I want to know which file will be used while booting
up the server.  If I need to modify, which one should
I change it?  Thank you so much, Ricky.

Dear
You need to change timeout option in
/boot/grub/grub.conf file

change  the timeout option to
timeout=20
After that reboot ur system, now ur system waits for 20 seconds at booting up.

Enjoy
