Question How to set FC2 to default boot from the latest kernel

G'day. I have 3 versions of kernel installed on my FC2, namely ver.2.6.5, ver.2.6.7 & ver.2.6.8. Each time, my FC2 default boot from ver.2.6.5 unless I manually select otherwise. How do I set my FC2 to boot by default from ver.2.6.8?
Thank you in advance.

Log in as SU in terminal and change directory to /boot/grub and gedit grub.conf. Check which is the kernel you want to boot from and select that as 'default'. Remember that the numbers start from '0', so if you want the third-listed title to boot, the default will be '2'. Make sure you save your gedit, once done and exit from the terminal rather than just closing it, so the change will stick.
