This question already has an answer here:
Installing Ubuntu 10.10 I get the GRUB2 boot manager. By default is does instant booting of the first entry, i.e. you have to hold the Shift key while booting when you want to enter the menu.
How can I disable this behavior? I mean, how can I configure GRUB2 such that it always displays its menu and uses perhaps a timeout of 5 seconds for the first entry?
