    Ubuntu uses menu.lst file as Boot Loader directive... FC5 uses grub.conf
    actually both files are same... only names are different... depends on distro to distro..... FC5 has symlinked menu.lst file in /etc......

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi,
    I've installed Ubuntu 6.06.01.

    Now the Ubuntu GRUB has Ubuntu set as its default OS. But my PC is also used by my family members who are not that tech savy and accustomed to Windows, which I have.

    So how can I change the default OS to Win XP Pro in the Ubuntu GRUB menu when nothing is selected?

    In FC's GRUB my default OS was Win XP so there was no problem. So will installing FC's GRUB solve my problem?

    Please help.

    Hi src !!

    dont install Fedora's GRUB again... edit /boot/grub/menu.lst of Ubuntu.
    look for default 0. count title lines ( without # mark )... note the title line no of 'Windows' and replace default 0 with that ( number - 1 )......

    if its confusing, post your menu.lst

    Hi casper,
    problem
    1. Can't edit the file. Its opening in Read Only mode.

    2.
    Code:
    # menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
    #            grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
    #            grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
    #            and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.
    
    ## default num
    # Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
    # the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
    #
    # You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
    # is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.
    # WARNING: If you are using dmraid do not change this entry to 'saved' or your
    # array will desync and will not let you boot your system.
    default		0
    
    ## timeout sec
    # Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
    # (normally the first entry defined).
    timeout		10
    
    ## hiddenmenu
    # Hides the menu by default (press ESC to see the menu)
    #hiddenmenu
    
    # Pretty colours
    #color cyan/blue white/blue
    
    ## password ['--md5'] passwd
    # If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing
    # control (menu entry editor and command-line)  and entries protected by the
    # command 'lock'
    # e.g. password topsecret
    #      password --md5 $1$gLhU0/$aW78kHK1QfV3P2b2znUoe/

    ## alternative kernel options
    ## e.g. howmany=all
    ##      howmany=7
    # howmany=all

    ## e.g. memtest86=true
