Ok, did a test install this morning on a dual boot (Win 7) system and
the grub timeout was set to 5, which is as directed for multi boot
systems or installs using serial.

Also, I changed the timeout after the install and it stays that way and
doesn't change back.  The setting is permanently until I change it
