Ah, well, for that you probably need to adjust the "timeout" parameter in 
/boot/grub/grub.conf,  and maybe "hiddenmenu" and such. Of course, you need to 
have root permissions to do that, so in that case the simplest solution is to 
use the rescue CD/DVD to fix the grub.conf and get the grub menu back.

Best, :-)
