HELP: changing default OS to boot....


Once installed Fedora Core 3, how does one change the boot loader's options such as the default OS to boot. My default OS to boot used to be Windows XP. But once I auto-updated my FC3 kernel, now the default is that new FC3 kernel (default = Fedora Core 3).

HELP!

At /boot/gub/grub.conf change the "default" option to the correct value


default=number of system you want

/etc/grub.conf is symbolic link to /boot/grub/grub.conf
