    When starting up Windows XP Home Ed. There is a black page with white text
    which tells me to press F8 to get to the bios.
    It originally stayed on the screen so briefly that I couldn't read it. Then
    by accident I found a box that gave me the option of lengthening its
    duration so I changed it to 25seconds. This was fine but I want to drop it
    to about 5 seconds and I have no idea where to find that box again,
    Would appreciate your help.
    Jim.
