    Grub Queston


    Hey guys, i just installed kubuntu alongiside windows xp, and something really strange happend. For one on the grub screen, there it looks like there is 2 kubuntu os installed when really it is the same one.... however either one i click is the same one...
    As wierd is that is however that is not my problem..
    how do i set it so that windows xp is the default OS on boot?
    Most linux flavours have a GUI way to do it in the setup menu however kubuntu does not, and seeing as how im a noob, any advice or help would be greatly appreciated

    thanks

    You can edit the grub configuration file if you installed the grub.
    It will be /boot/grub/grub.conf
    To be safe please backup that file, before you modify.

    Best,

    In Ubuntu it is /boot/grub/menu.lst.

    Having 2 Ubuntu is not a problem :
