How do you change the default Boot-up OS in Grub?

Below is a copy of my grub.conf file. What do I need to change so that Fedora is set to boot by default rather than Windows XP? Is it the "chainloader +1" statement that needs moved under the Fedora statements?

title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
title Microsoft Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

... set to boot by default...
You have answered yet. Change the line with 'default' from 1 to 0.

Dorian33 is right. And if you want an easy way to boot into XP while keeping Fedora as the default, try this program from an earlier thread: bootdos
