Dual Booting List


So I installed WinXP and Kubuntu (Dual Boot)
Now when the PC starts I get
Kubuntu...
Other Operating Systems:
Windows XP

I want to change this so that WinXP loads by deafult
(If nothing happened for 20 sec load WinXP not Kubuntu...)

how?
thx

Edit the file /boot/grub/menu.lst and change "default" from 0 to 1, 2, etc (0 corresponds to the 1st entry on the list, 1 to the 2nd entry, 2 to the 3rd entry, etc).

edit with your favorite editor (gedit, vi, nano emacs...) /boot/grub/menu.lst as root
change the number after the 'default' word, or add the line if not present :
default 2 (kubuntu is 0 and windows is 3 a,d the 'Others operating systems' is 2 but it's useless)
