    Maybe try putting 'splash=silent' in the kernel arguments in menu.lst?

    Splash=silent Not Working - openSUSE Forums

    The timeout (I think it's in boot/grub/menu.lst, can't remember) is the amount of time the boot menu is displayed before booting.

    To remove the boot options at startup change the timeout to 0; to just make it go quicker, whilst still giving you the option, simply reduce it to a small number.

    Regards,
    Barry.

    You can change the number to 0; however, if you ever need to load the
    failsafe version because one of your drivers got corrupted, you will
    be screwed!

    I have my timeout set to 3, at install it was quite high; about 8, I think.

    If you needed to do that, couldn't you use a live CD to change the timeout back or to just fix the problem or am I missing something?
