I'd like to write a little shell script which ask the user to chooce between n choice and I want that the program go on after 30 seconds for example if the user didn't choose anything.

in batch cmd I was using the choice command but as it is for beeing run under windows PE 3.0 dos command are very poor.

Thx in advance
