Description of problem:

  I have a dell poweredge machine connected to external Dell disk pack.
I have set the timeout as 0 in the grub.conf. 
  But whenever I reboot the machine it asks for "press any key to
continute" ( even though I have set the timeout as  0 ). And if I dont
press any key, the system gets hung for around 10 minutes and then after
10 minutes it starts showing the next messages and then everything
goes fine. But I dont face this problem on other set of machines
which have similar setup ( both connected to external Dell disk pack)

  What can be the problem?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot a machine with RHEL 3.0 installed  on it. (smp kernel)
2. dont press any key when it asks for, while booting the machine

Actual Results:  machine gets hung

Expected Results:  normal  boot operation

timeout of zero is infinite, not no timeout.
