Bumping your own thread after an hour is unlikely to endear you to people who could potentially answer your question.
Given the frequency that this is asked, a little searching would provide the answer. As would reading the grub doco.

I suggest to read grub manual
#man grub or info grub
Then jump to Configuration menu to set default os to boot n set timeout by either editing or creating menu.lst
