    Fedora uses grub as the default bootloader, right? In your /etc/grub.conf file, you can change the default and timeout fields to do what you're asking about.

    The default value sets the default boot image (it starts counting at 0, so if you want the second image in your list to get booted, use 1)

    The timeout value sets the delay before booting the default image. Yours is set to 3 right now...you can set it to whatever you want.
