Grub default OS to be changed


I have grub boot loader installed with Mandrake 7.2 & Win Xp on my grub boot list. Mandrake is default OS. How can I change the default to Win Xp.

Just go into the /boot/menu.lst file in your choice of editor as root and change the value for default = to match whatever label you have for WinXP. On the next boot, the WinXP label will show as the default.
