I have a linux box that functions as a remote weather station.  Long

to boot into a maintenance shell, which means I have to drive to the
remote site to attach a keyboard and monitor and type 'reboot' to get
it to go through the normal bootup.

about to go away, but in the mean time, do any of you know how to keep
Grub from behaving this way?  I'd rather it always boot when power is
