/boot/grub/menu.lst is a plain text file. You need to use a text editor to modify it. Root privileges are required to be able to save the modified file.
So the process is pretty simple:
- log-in as root to the JDS desktop.
- open the editor (Launch/Application/Accessories/Text Editor)
- open the grub menu file: (File/Open/File System/boot/grub/menu.lst)
- have a look at the file, the fourth line should contain the line to modify. Each entry starts with a line beginning with "Title ...". If the Windows entry is the fourth, then modifiy the default line to show:
Save the file and reboot (init 6 or init 5/power on).
