To change the startup order, you need to edit /etc/lilo.conf or /etc/grub.conf (errr, I don't have grub, I cannot swear the adress is the good one) manually. For instance run (alt-F2) "kdesu kwrite /etc/lilo.conf)
But that's at your own risk, make sure to make a backup copy first !
BTW, would someone know what is "vmlinuz" ? I never found out

I think vmlinuz is just a common name for the kernel that is compiled. But I'm not sure.

We can change the boot option from there.
