    Hi and Welcome !

    Login as root user and open /boot/grub/grub.conf file. Set default value to title Fedora line no. -1.

    Let say, title Fedora is 3rd title line in file. Set default value to 2.

    Code:
    default     2
    In case it doesn't work, post the contents of /boot/grub/grub.conf file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You must be logged in as root user
    Or execute this as Regular user
    Code:
    su -
    nano /boot/grub/grub.conf

    Press Ctrl+X, Y and hit Enter key.

    If you are logged in as Regular user then dont forget to execute su - command before nano.
