boot fedora to edit the grub.conf file.
"/boot/grub/menu.lst" or a symlink "/etc/grub.conf"
there are various parameters in this file, changing those to your
needs will help.
1. Increase the wait period
timeout <n secs>
2. remove this line if you are prompted to hit ESC before to see the grub menu.
3.The default OS to boot.
the conf file itself has sufficient explanation of these params..
