I have tried Bootpicker for this but it boots into OSX then gives you the selection screen.

I am trying rEFIt just now and although it works at the same time as you hold down the option key, i was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to customize its interface? It gives the user the option to select OS which is great but i will be deploying it in a lab and it also gives you the option to enter cmd line and partition the drive. Obviously i dont want students using that!

Does anyone know of a way i can do that or perhaps another program that i can use for this?
