setting options on boot screen (windows/suse)


hi. i'm not a linux expert, but i am running a vaio as a dual-boot w/ windows xp and suse. very happy w/ the install (although suse refuses to accept my linksys wireless...which is for another thread and another day).

my question is how do i configure the booth option screen? i.e. the page that comes up after powering up with the options to select an os. it is currently defaulted to suse, but i want the option to change it.

if anyone can help, it's much appreciated.

You will find a grub.conf file somewhere under /boot. That is where you can make changes to grub. Unless you are using lilo then it is located at /etc/lil.conf.
