grub boot order


How would I change the boot order for a dual boot with linux sarge, and windows xp.

As it is now if you just let it go it boots linux. I want it to boot windows by default, and have to select linux to boot?

open grub.conf and modify the number for the default OS
set to 0 it will boot the first OS in the list,
set to 1 it will boot the second OS in the list,
etc

Some distros use /boot/grub/grub.conf, but others use /boot/grub/menu.lst ... that may help you find what you're looking for.

menu.lst is usually a link to grub.conf, so check grub.conf first.

for the ska eof copleteness, the prameter you need to change is
default=0
