Unhappy Need Grub to Boot to Vista as Default


I currently have both Ubuntu 9.10 and Vista installed, and would like the Grub to boot to Windows as default selection. Unfortunately, I did not remember which OS I installed in the first place, and even could not find the menu.lst either.
Please share your inputs.
Thanks.
T. Doan

I believe Ubuntu 9.10 uses Grub 2. Here is a link that might help you out with Grub 2, which doesn't use menu.lst any more.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2


Edit: If it is Grub Legacy /boot/grub/menu.lst is the path to it.

Ubuntu 9.10 uses Grub2.

You may need to change the default in /etc/default/grub and then regenerating your grub.cfg.

grub.cfg is now the preferred method over menu.lst.
