no gui for this but it is easily changed in the /boot/grub/grub.conf file

you can change the names of each OS in the list, the timeout limit if you want one at all, the default selected OS and even change the background to one you make yourself.


vi /etc/grub/grub.conf

or use you favourite text editor
