Choosing OS on dual boot computer WOL wake on lan

My other computer can boot either Windows XP or Kubuntu (7.04)

I've been using the other computer via VNC using WOL, wake on lan, successfully with Windows XP.

What I would like to do is choose between XP and Kubuntu at the startup.

I don't want to run a VM of either on the other, it's not a slow computer for what I use it for but I wouldn't like to lose any performance.

WOL does not have the capability to choose an operating system at power up.
You can configure the boot loader for a default OS.
