Repo question for openSUSE 11 / 11.1

Is it possible to decrease the time (defaults 30 secs or so) for the
repo timeout (i.e. when a particular package/rpm can’t be got in a repo,
during online update or software installation, the system gives a pop-up
box with option of re-trying in <30> secs. I would like to decrease this
timeout to less than 30 secs).

Is there a system file need to be edited for this?
