In theory the timeout is "0" :-). Or I suppose, "only as long as it
takes to poll the keyboard to see if a key is pressed".
(In case you are wondering, the reason was to further reduce boot time.
You can of course edit grub.conf to have an actual timeout, if you prefer.)

Right, this is what you're supposed to do :-). (Or even start holding a
key during POST works, which is why I suggested ctrl as something that
POST will ignore, and that grub will only pay attention to as far as
"oh, you want to see the menu".)
