Question Two puppy linux questions

1. I have loaded Puppy Linux (Latest Distro) on a Win Netbook. Puppy keeps displaying the Grub bootlloader menu on the startup screen . How do I have Puppy skip the Grub bootloader display screen and bootup to the Puppy main screen. I have looked at the Puppy web and could not find anything.

2. After the Grub bootloader screen displays and I tell it to load the Linux OS on the listed HD partion it then askes for the video resolution for the laptop.
How do get puppy to save the my choice for this and not display this screen at each time the system boots up ?

Thanks For Your Suggestions

MrUnknown is on a distinguished road

you need to edit the grub.conf file. there should be a timeout option in there.

As for the video resolution, passing vga= (lookup the options available online) to the kernel might fix it. I have never used Puppy, and I have no idea why it would even bother asking for a resolution.

edit: link to a table of vga options:

edit edit: that vga parameter is for what is called a framebuffer and not for GNOME/KDE/XWindows, as I have no idea when/where/why puppy linux is asking for a resolution, I assume it is this.
