To get a longer delay on lilo, just change (or create if not there) the entry
for 'timeout' in lilo.conf. It will look like:
....bunch o' stuff
bunck o' stuff
The timeout is in 10ths of a second, so the about is 5 seconds. You will need
to change that value and rerun lilo on the kernel disk. I would suggest a
value like 200, for 20 seconds.
