    as root (or su -) use your favorite editor to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf

    Here you will find a line that says default followed by a number, the number is the number of the title entry that you want as default (counting from zero not one). Change this number to the entry (OS) that you want (each OS has its own "title" line, count these starting at zero).

    Save the file.

    Reboot

    Have fun

    ps. what's wrong with having Linux as your default OS? :P

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
