changing redhat 7.3 boot order

I have a PC that is dual booting; redhat 7.3 and window 98SE.
The redhat boot loader is Grub 0.97. By default Grub lists Linux
as the first os and windows the second, it auto loads Linux as
its supposed to after 10 seconds. My question is: How can I
list windows as the first os listed - so that it auto loads first??
In reading the redhat 7.3 information on Grub it appears with
all the information they throw at you, it can be misleading &
if not done right mess it up, etc. Who knows the shortcuts
to clearly say do 1, 2, 3 and your there................thanks !!

now your first entry in menu.lst is linux, change it with the windows entry, so that the windows lines come first, or change default 1 to default 2 (also in menu.lst)
