    Vista has a command-line tool called 'bcdedit' which is such a pain to
    use that these folks wrote a graphical front-end for it:

    I'd say you shouldn't remove that boot menu until you've used Vista for
    a week or so. You can also set the default timeout for 5 seconds so you
    don't need to interact with the menu if you don't want to.

    Control Panel::System and Maintenance::System
    [You may need to enter the Administrator's password here.]

    Then click on 'Advanced system settings'. The timeout is
    set in the 'Startup and Recovery' settings dialog.
