Unhappy Change booting sequence

I have a Linux Mandrake 8.2 installed on my desktop pc. Another operating system installed on pc is windows 98. Mandrake used LILO boot loader. The default first boot is Linux and then windows. I want to change this sequence and make it to windows should be boot first (default) and then Linux.

How can I do this???

Edit /etc/lilo.conf - there should be a "default" entry in there.

Then don't forget to update lilo after you edit its conf file
