I want my Ubuntu USB key to boot with no menu


Hi, I have created a Ubuntu USB key, but whey I boot it up the Grub boot menu gives me a few options, I just want it to automatically go to the 1st option, below is a copy of the the only file I could find from /boot/grup/loopback.cfg

menuentry "Try Ubuntu without installing" {
linux /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=${iso_path} quiet splash --
initrd /casper/initrd.lz
}
menuentry "Install Ubuntu" {
linux /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper only-ubiquity iso-scan/filename=${iso_path} quiet splash --
initrd /casper/initrd.lz
}
menuentry "Check disc for defects" {
linux /casper/vmlinuz boot=casper integrity-check iso-scan/filename=${iso_path} quiet splash --
initrd /casper/initrd.lz
}
menuentry "Test memory" {
linux16 /install/mt86plus
}

Many thanks to anyone who can help me on this one ..

Edit
Code:
/boot/grub/grub.cfg
and set the time out to 1
Code:
GRUB_TIMEOUT=1
You can comment out the other options in the menu

Kind regards

Deleted. Got busy and didn't realize how long I took to hit the post button.... Said the same thing as repo.
