Default boot question


I use GRUB as a boot selector thing, and I need to change the default to DOS, so that If I turn it on and walk away, it boots into windows automaticly, without me having to select DOS.

ok, open /boot/grub.grub.conf or /boot/grub/menu.lst depending on the age of your distro, and change the default value. first "title" entry = 0, and count from there. and if it's windows you're booting, why not call it "windows"?
