    open /boot/grub/menu.lst file and count title lines. note down Windows title number. set value of default to that number -1.
    let say windows title number is 5, set default to 4.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    What seems to be the problem? Perhaps we can fix it so you can make Debian the default .
