That Mandrake BOot menu

Hey everyone, I just threw mandrake 10 on my machine, and when it boots, you know that blue screen with a few versions of linux, then failsafe, windows and floppy? ... how do I set windows as the default so if I dont select a differet one in 8 seconds it will boot to windows rather than linux?

Go to the Mandrake Control Center, and run BootDrake. It will list which drive is your boot drive, click OK, it should give you a list of boot options. Linux will have a * beside it, since it is your default. Select Windoze, and modify. There is a check box to set it as default.
