You will not imagine, but these changes are very simple.
You have simply to edit the `/boot/grub/menu.lst' file.
In the first lines you find the entry `default' and `timeout'.
Timeout sets the time you have to select, and `default' sets
the entry of the menu, which should be loaded by default,
where the first entry (starting with `title .....') has the 
number `0', the next `1', etc.
The `fallback' can be set up to load an other entry, if the 
default entry fails.

You have nothing to do after editing the file (no command to
call etc...). On the next reboot, you see, that the changes 
have their effects.
