How to change default OS in Grub dual boot screen

I have installed Dual Boot System with Grub.

Windows 2000
Red Hat Advanced Sever 3

When I boot the system, First screen shows Linux as the
default one

How can I change the order.

Default OS should be Windows 2000.

Any help will highly appreciated.

Thanks in Advacne

Edit the /boot/grub/grub.conf file. There will be a line "defualt=" with a number after it. The number equals the order of the OSes listed, starting with 0.
