Where is the file?

Recommended Posts

I installed Ubuntu version 9 a while ago on my 2nd HDD and it installed the grub loader so

I can choose between Windows XP or Ubuntu. I HATE the long 30 second wait

when I boot up windows and I remember from a previous installation that I could edit the Grub

configuration file to change the number of seconds that it times out.

I went looking all over and couldn't find it in this installation. Could somebody point

me to the right directory and file? Thanks.

IINM it's /boot/grub/menu.lst on Ubuntu.

Edit: According to the wiki, it's menu.lst for 9.04 and grub.cfg for 9.10. However, if you're using 9.10, the timeout is controlled by a variable in /etc/default/grub.
