Change boot order of operating system?

Hi guys and girls,

I have XP proffesional installed on my C partition (30 Gb) and Linux Ubuntu installed on my D partition (10Gb).

At the mo when i boot up, Ubuntu is the first operating system on the list, a few other ubuntu options follow including memtest and then finally about the 6th option is my xp proffesional. How can i change that order so that XP is the first in the list?

Which bootloader are you using?

If it is XP then you can edit the boot.ini file.

If not then you want to try the Linux forum.
