At boot I get ELILO Boot:

I had an issue with the start menu not appearing so I had to do something like reload messagebus. I don't have the documentation in front of me but either way this fixed my issue.
Now the issue I have is at bootup I have ELILO Boot: appear on my screen. I can type anything and then it will boot perfectly into Mandriva. Also though if I don't type anything in around 5-10 seconds it still boots into Mandriva. how can I make it so that it doesn't do this and automatically goes into Mandriva without this delay?

I do not use LILO always use GRUB , but I am, wondering if the menu.lst from LILO do have a delay option , this give you the time top choose a other OS if you're dual booting , if not set the delay option to zero

The file in question is /etc/lilo.conf, but it is safer to make such changes in MCC.
Open MCC (Tools > System Tools > Configure your computer in the menu system).
Select Boot in the Category list (left)
Open the Set up Boot icon (main pane)
Here you can choose between Grub and Lilo and set the boot delay period. If you are booting to Linux and you have no other OS installed, I suggest you continue to use Lilo, but set the Delay before booting the default image value to zero (0).
Click the Next button
Here you can edit the items in your boot menu. You should see only an entry for linux. You can check to make sure that it is booting the newest installed kernel if you want to, then click the Finish button.
Close MCC and restart your computer. The system should now boot directly into Mandriva with no delay.
