Thank you, that did the trick.
Not trying to be rude but since this is the newbie forum you should assume the person you're helping knows nothing and provide instructions. To be honest I'm very new to Linux(only Ubuntu and Mint so far) and stumbled onto how to do it by accident.
Hitting F5 to bring up the Options menu and then Esc to close it stops the timer countdown, is there a better way?
Select the option you want in the install menu and the keyboard left/right arrows lets you edit the boot line(text below the menu options).
Off topic, I'm currently using Mint 13 w/MATE 1.2 and was a little surprised at the difference in appearance of the main menu. Is this a difference between MATE 1.2 and 1.4 , Mint and Sabayon or a some of both? As a former Windows user I really like this menu layout.
