[CentOS] GRUB Timeout problem

I recently installed CentOS 5.1 on a DL71 ASI notebook. 

After my yum update the timeout parameter in /boot/grub/grub.conf file 
has no effect.  It sits at the grub screen forever unless I press the 
enter key to select a kernel, at which point it will boot.

Any help or suggestions to fix this would be much appreciated

#          initrd /initrd-version.img
