    Win98 Startup menu - 5 seconds

    I'd like to know how to set Win98 to display the startup menu (1. Normal, ... Safe mode, ... Dos mode ) at startup.

    A couple of months ago I read a tech article that described the setting, and applied the setting, but did not keep the article.

    The setting was neat (for me). It caused the startup menu to appear for the time I chose (5 seconds) instead of the normal 30 seconds.

    The article had many other goodies, too, so if (or its link) it was posted by a contributor here, I'd greatly appreciate a reference.

    Thanks.

    Try <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.highlandsystems.com/index.htm>HighlandSystems</A>
    Click on the Win95/98 tips on the left and scroll to the bottom.

    Thanks, Leif. That should do it.

    Odd. I would've bet my reputation against Kevin's (grin!) that it was a registry fix.
