sounds and looks great!

are you using X or talking directly into framebuffer?

if you follow the thread with my tests, i got 12seconds as well and
this was with ssh access and also X server running, my select script
was in (slow) python and TK. it was my big hope to get it to about 7
seconds when X is not used... good luck! 12 seconds is simply too long
for just a boot menu to show up...
