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?

In Grub their is a setting in the file (menu.lst) which is processed on screen and waits a certain number of seconds.
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img

kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-117.fc10.x86_64 ro root=UUID=ff80d882-7b8d-4801-ae10-bde0a82676fb rhgb quiet
In the above the 'timeout=5' means that the menu stays on screen for 5 seconds. If I want to have it boot without showing the menu set it to 0. I am not sure how ELILO handles it but it must be very similar. These boot scripts may be under /root or /boot depending. Hope this helps. Cheers...
