What boot loader are you using? Grub or Lilo?

look at your bootloaders configuration file(s)...

man grub.config
man lilo.conf

whichever you chose to install :)

Cheers,

Yeah thats because your not using grub your using lilo. Let me check my handy dandy book here....ah yes the file you are looking for is /etc/lilo.conf

The parameter will look like this:

default=linux

Change it to whatever your windows label is. So if it says something to the effect of:

other=/dev/hda1
optional
label=winblows

you would change it to:

default=winblows
