    boot up Kubuntu, press Alt+F2 and type this
    Code:
    kdesu kate /boot/grub/menu.lst
    this will open menu.lst file with root privileges. Count title lines and set default value to Windows title line no -1.
    lest say, Windows title line is 5th, set default 4.
    set timeout value to 20. save file and reboot.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
