How to set the default boot operating system at the boot menu


Dear friends,

I have a dual boot computer. fc2 and windows.

Currently when my computer boots up, and when it gets into the grub menu, it defaultly points to my fc2 as boot option. Just wondering say if I prefer it to default choice as windows, is it possible to twig something so it happens so?

And say in future if I want it to defaultly boot as linux again, any way to twig it back?

thanks for taking time helping,

Regards
Y

Just edit the /boot/grub/grub.conf
For example:
The part that says default=0 means the first entry boots by default. If you change that to default=1 the second system in the list gets booted by default.
