Dual Boot Menu Options
Hi everyone, my system runs with 512 of RAM, and two hard drives. my C: drive is a 40 g with two partitions in it, it is divided into to equal parts. on one partition I have Windows XP Pro, which works fine, and in the second partition I have SUSE 9.2 Pro, it works nice too.
My question is, how can I change the default OS to be Windows instead of SUSE?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to LQ.

Which bootloader are you using?

Don't know about grub, but in lilo all you have to do is put default="LABEL" on the line below "map". Not too hard at all.

for grub on Suse:


Change the "default" number to the windows entry. The first entry is 0 (most likely it's: "title SUSE LINUX 9.2"). See below for the top portion of a default Suse install.

color white/blue black/light-gray
default 0 <-----------------------------(change this number)
timeout 8
gfxmenu (hd0,1)/boot/message
