Ok people i figured it out
>boot> menu list > i removed the # sign infront of the time out and reduced it from 30 to 10 seconds i may reduce it to 5 or 7 ten is a little high...
i think i am getting this old p3 256 of ram humming along, just need to get a few things going and it will be great.
getting to love the pup!!!!
