You change boot options by editing the file


Press Alt+F2 and type

gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

to edit it. The lines with # at the beginning are ignored. So change the line

# hiddenmenu



to get rid of the menu.

You can also change the

timeout 3

to make that wait at the beginning shorter or longer.
