That's interesting.  I just booted this netbook with 10.04 installed and I got 
the 5 second delay.  I also have a menu.lst.  (Perhaps it remains from a 
previous installation, and perhaps, if you have one, it works with grub2.)  
Certainly no grub expert, but looking at the 3 linux computers here at home, 
all are 9.10 or 10.04, and all have menu.lst, and one -- a 9.10 -- presents a 
menu every time.

OK, $ grub --version
grub (GNU GRUB 0.97), but these are all current Ubuntus.  Perhaps grub is not 
upgraded with release upgrades?
