grub and boot mode


Is there any way to skip grub? The only os on my computer is RH8, and i dont like waiting 10 seconds or having to hang around to press enter.

I was also wondering how I can change from graphical to text logon mode in RH8

thank you for help

type "init 3" for text, and "init 5" to go back to GUI.

I wonder if grub.conf will take decimals?
timeout=.00000001

Set it to zero. The Grub manual has no restrictions listed on this. Let us know if it works.

Edit /etc/inittab and change the default run level.
