Remove GRUB or LILO Boot screen


Is it possible to remove the boot screen from LILO or GRUB. Suse is the only OS on my system and i don't need the boot options screen. I know that i can't remove the boot loader, and i don't want to set the time out to a really low value, because then it just flashes the screen and it looks really bad (yes, im picky). I just want my sys to boot up and go straight to the kdm screen without the grub screen coming up.

Yes in that file ( which is really /boot/grub/menu.lst why some distros screw around with the I don't know ).

Anywhere at the top. just on a line of its own, I'd also specify a timeout of say 2 seconds. If you need to get access to the boot menu ( for emergencies etc. ) you just have to press escape during the timeout, and your back to the menu.

Trust me, this can be a life saver.
