linux instead of windows by default; may sound simple to you pro's but to me
it's a big problem!

linux & winxp are on separate HDs
win xp was installed first, then linux alongside grub
grub calls windowsxp 'other' on the bootloader


in /boot/grub/grub.conf
the line you want to modify is, I believe, 'default #'.
count how many entries there are _before_ the 'other' entry and put that number as the # after default. you _may_ want to set 'fallback #' to the # currently set originally/currently as default.
