memtest in grub

Alright here's the scoop. I'm an idiot.
I successfully got grub to boot into memtest by adding few simple lines. However, I left timeout equal to zero. Now when memtest finishes and the machine reboots it goes back to memtest immediately.
I _would_ simply pop in a boot cd and edit the grub.conf except the machine is a couple hundred miles away. I am going to have to talk a computer illiterate person through getting back to the OS.
I guess I'm hoping to hear that there is some key I can hold down during boot and make the grub menu appear. Anyone know of such a thing? If not I'm going to have to overnight a bootable cd to this poor girl because of my stupidity.

Sorry but no such key exists.
