Compatibility: 6.0+ 
 Purpose: Chooses a default selection in a MultiConfig Menu and sets a
          time-out value to let the boot process continue setting up a
          default configuration.

    Uses: ■ Set up so that a MultiConfig CONFIG.SYS file can run its course
            automatically, without user intervention.
          ■ Position the menu cursor so that one press of Enter will
            continue with the most-often used configuration.
          ■ Skip the "MS-DOS Startup Menu" display altogether.

  Syntax: MENUDEFAULT=blockName [,time-out]


blockName is the name of a block of CONFIG.SYS commands.  It must be one of
          the blocks named in a MENUITEM= or SUBMENU= command in the same
          menu block.

          [blockName] (the same text, enclosed in square brackets, on a
          line by itself) must appear elsewhere in the CONFIG.SYS file.

 time-out specifies a delay interval, in seconds.  DOS will wait time-out
          seconds and if it senses no keystrokes, it exits the menu and
          executes the commands in the block identified by blockName.

          If time-out is omitted, DOS will display the menu and pause until
          Enter is pressed.

          The time-out value can range from 0 to 90 seconds.  A value of 0
          causes DOS to bypass the menu and immediately execute the
          commands in the blockName block.

█▌TECH Notes▐█

  ■ An invalid syntax such as...

      MENUDEFAULT no_ems No EMS, 10

    ...will cause DOS to try to evaluate "NO EMS" as a time-out number and
    it comes out as 0.  The result is that execution immediately begins at
