If you mean timeout while booting (you have no time to enter darwin loader option), once logged in as root find your com.apple.Boot.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ directory.

Open it with plist editor if you have installed. Then add to the Root a new sibling, string type. The Sibling must have the name "Timeout" and its value is the amount of second Darwin loader has to wait before loading the default chioce.

If you have not the property list editor, you can modify the com.apple.Boot.plist with TextEdit(or) application.

Here I post my com.apple.Boot.plist

Simply add the lines





at the right position.

Hope it helps.
