grub menu


I use grub as my bootloader, I boot into linux 99.9% of the time but I just installed Win2k on the weekend to play HL2 without paying for a Cedega subscription At any rate, I don't have/want the grub menu to show up but should I want it to appear so I can boot Win2k is there a keyboard shortcut to bring it up? With NTLDR I can push F8, grub equivilant?

The hidden menu interface

When your terminal is dumb or you request GRUB of hiding the menu interface explicitly with the command @command{hiddenmenu} (see section hiddenmenu), GRUB doesn't show the menu interface (see section The simple menu interface) and automatically boots the default entry, unless interrupted by pressing ESC.

When you interrupt the timeout and your terminal is dumb, GRUB falls back to the command-line interface (see section The flexible command-line interface).
