changing operating systems

I finally got 2 partitions set up on my computer. One is XP pro, and the other is Vista Ultimate.

They are both on different partitions, but now it always boots up to Vista.

How can I change it so I can choose between both OS's?

Hi Slide,

Try to change it in Vista by right-clicking Computer > Properties > Advanced System Settings in left hand pane > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery and click Settings. From the drop-down menu under "Default operating system" choose XP (it might say "earlier version of Windows" or something like that).
