Question Grub Question

Is there a way to disable the time limit on the grub menu when choosing a operating system all together? It gets quite annoying when I wanna use Windows and have to leave the computer for a moment and it automatically starts Fedora.

In your /boot/grub/grub.conf , there will be a timeout=# line. You can either change the # to something really big (it's seconds), or put a #-sign in front of the line to make it a comment, then it shouldn't timeout.
