When you get the screen with the Red Hat logo with "press any key to enter menu" at the top, press any key within 5 seconds and you will be able to choose your OS. If you want it to wait longer than 5 seconds, edit file /boot/grub/grub.conf and change the line timeout=5 to however many seconds you want.

If it sometimes asks you for the root password you can't be root.

Try this:
Open a terminal (Click on the Applications menu, select System tools, then select Terminal)
Type:
Code:
su -
enter the root password (if it asks for it).

Type:
Code:
gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf
A screen editor window should open. Find the line
Code:
timeout=5
Change the 5 to 1000 or whatever you want. Save the file.
