problems with boot agent default

I installed the new fedora core on my second hard disk. during the installation I choose the default boot to be the first hard disk (with windows). (I used the GRUB boot agent to be installed on the first hard disk).
All worked fine, until I did update to the linux, and now the new kernel is the default boot.
I tried to change the settings with instructions i got from fedora web site, but the files in the \boot directory says "premmision deny" so i can't access the configuration file to change the default boot.
I'm new at Linux, so I'm not sure if i can login as administrator (I remmember that i gave a password for it during installation), but I could'nt log in as administrator with the password I gave. Or maybe I need to do something else to get premmision to change the file.

thank you,

You want to login as root. root is the administrator name in linux. Then you will be able to edit the grub conf files.
