The instructions below are pretty clear except if you have hidenmenu
enabled in grub.conf (the default) there is an intital step that you
need to hit return when you get the first single grub boot line to get
to the display where you can hit a, etc.

As for the basic assumptions about individuality and self, this is the
core of what I like about cyberpunk. And it's the core of what I like
about certain pre-gibson neophile techie SF writers that certain folks
here like to put down. Not everyone makes the same assumptions. I
haven't lost my mind... it's backed up on tape. -- Peter da Silva
