changing boot loader options

Hi. I have Suse installed and it loads Linux first, how do I change it so it can load Windows first instead? I don't know what boot loader I have.. how can I tell what boot loader I have?

check for either /etc/lilo.conf or /boot/grub/menu.lst This will tell you which one you have. ( unless you have both installed ) Usually grub says at the top of the screen that its grub, and which version your using.
