how do I disable boot screen?

I like to press ESC during the boot to remove OpenSuse load screen and progress bar. Is there a way to permananty disable it?

Edit the file at /boot/grub/menu.lst

With kde do

kdesu kwrite /boot/grub/menu.lst

with gnome

gnomesu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

Here is my example:
