    setting Windows as default OS instead of Fedora


    hello everyone
    i have installed a copy of Fedora core 8 on my system.
    when i start my PC
    to see the list of OS installed on my PC i have to press ESC key .
    and the first OS in the list is Fedora.
    i want that when i start my PC i was displayed with a list of OS in wh Windows is at the first level followed by Fedora.
    i know how it can be done with UBUNTU but i wanna know how it can be done with fedora.
    thanks

    ok

    you just change
    Code:
    default 0
    to point to the Windows entry.
    it shouldnt be different from Ubuntu's since both of them use grub

    yeah that's why i wanted you to give us your menu.lst so we can see what you have in there but anyway is the option "hiddenmenu" commented out in that menu.lst file?
    if its not the case comment it out and save the file
