Zorin Installation Dual Boot with XP -Help Please


Just installed Zorin os 7 dual booting with Windows XP. From the installation instructions was the following:

"After the installation you will be prompted to restart the computer, after the restart the computer should boot up into a menu where you choose which operating system you want to start. To select one use the arrow keys to highlight an option and press the Enter key to start the highlighted one."

My problem is that after restarting the computer, the choice to select the OS that I want to start does not eventuate and the boot defaults to Zorin. I can not see how to get to XP. Can anyone help this 70yr old please? Thanks. You will need to be very specific with the How to for me to grasp the message! lol
