stripping down GRUB menu

I was curious whether there was a way to strip down the diplayed grub menu. I put a splashscreen on and I would like to just have the choices displayed instead of having a big box around everything and a bunch of instructions at the bottom. Any way to do this? Thanks!

I'm not entirely sure what you mean.... I hardly ever see my Grub screen. but here's my menu.lst for a simplified example of one.:

default 0
timeout 30
color light-gray/blue black/light-gray

title Slackware -current []
  root (hd0,1)
  kernel /boot/vmlinuz-generic- root=/dev/hda2 ro vga=773

title Slackware -current []
  root (hd0,1)
  kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 ro vga=773

Sorry if I wasnt clear. The default grub screen has the list of boot options and around them there's a box. Underneath the box it tells about options you have (like how to access command line boot and such). I want it to only display the list of boot options without the box or the text at the bottom.
