Install LILO, it will do exactly what you ask. It can be configured
to wait a short time before auto-booting the default OS, or if any
of a number of keys (caps lock, shift, cntl, alt, and I dont' remember
what all) are pressed during the wait period it will prompt you for
the name of an OS to boot, and can give you a list of names if you
hit the TAB key.
It is fairly easy to set up too.
Have a good day,
