You can use the `read` command also to pause execution:

Hello,
the solution which is available atm is:

There is no pause command. To stop for a minute before showing the menu: sleep continues on Escape key only.

Hello,

In the Debian installer we'd like to have a help screen at the boot menu, to document some useful boot options etc., so we would like to have some command which allows to show some text (bigger than a screen), for instance a more/less command.
