Dual Boot Fedora Core 6 & XP, How can I make the MBR start XP first?

Hello, I attempted to create a Dual Boot system of XP and Fedora Core 6 (XP being my main drive) but seems that I missed a step somewhere and I think GRUB(?) took over as the boot loader and now it wants to boot into Fedora first. I have the XP boot loader configured to select either one but I can't figure out how to make the MBR select the XP boot loader over the Fedora. Any help is greatly appreciated.

On a second unrelated question. In the GRUB interface I accidentally set it up to load from the second option (I think where you can set up the Boot Loader Configuration) instead of loading from Fedora. The option I made doesn't load anything. How can I get it to select Fedora by default?

Thanks for any help!

Can a moderator please remove this thread? I did not realize my first one had a delay post (or needed moderator approval) so I posted again not thinking about it.
