You tell your bootloader. I assume you use GNU Grub.
Check the manfiles or the homepage of it on how to edit the file menu.lst in /boot/grubDebian GNU/Linux -- You know you want it.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
You can change the default boot kernel by editing the file (as root) /etc/grub/grub.conf. It will list the kernels you can boot from. Just change the "default" entry to the one that you want to boot by default (starts at 0). At least that's what you do for RHEL. For Fedora you might want to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, though since I don't use FC I cannot say for sure.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
