Unhappy Another GRUB Question

Hey There!

Ok here's my problem,

I'm trying to figure out this whole linux thing, and I'm doing alright, except for GRUB.
When I installed Grub, I for some reason put in my own menu item named "windows XP" and made it default, while needless to say, this option doesn't work.

So I need to know how to switch the default item in Grub, and the how to delete an entry.

Thanks for your help,
