i have no idea what lindows (not highly regarded round here really) uses for it's boot loader, it *should* be lilo but you never know... when the selection screen comes up try pressing escape and the screen should go black (assuming it's not already) and give you a prompt that says "LILO:" or something. if it is lilo then edit /etc/lilo.conf and chnge the default= line to the windows option. then run "lilo" and that should be it all done.
