grub question for FC3

i just installed fedora core 3 and i was wondering if there was a way to make it not do the countown screen at the beginning like in the old grub where it counted down from the menu screen.

Open up /boot/grub/grub.conf and set the timeout entry to -1. Here's my grub.conf as an example:

title Fedora Core 3 (2.6.9-1.681_FC3)
root (hd1,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 ro root=LABEL=FEDORA ide=reverse rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.img
title SUSE LINUX 9.2
kernel (hd1,2)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb3 vga=0x314 selinux=0 splash=silent ide=reverse resume=/dev/hda6 showopts desktop elevator=as
initrd (hd1,2)/boot/initrd
