Dual-boot OS selection


My dual-boot config supports Win XP on one of two HDs & Ubuntu on the other HD. However the sequence shown at bootup (GRUB ?) causes Linux to boot UNLESS i "arrow down" to Win (LAST entry). Since Win requires more re-booting than Ubuntu, if Win could appear FIRST (on top), the re-boot can be started while i go for coffee knowing that Win should be "up" when i return.

So the question is: how does a newbie change the boot sequence without shooting myself in the foot ? Thanx.
