Okay, no-one else has answered this yet ...
Luke, this is an easy enough one, you'll be glad to hear ...
a) Go into Linux
b) Open /etc/lilo.conf in your favourite editor
c) There will be two sections (hopefully) one marked Windows and one marked
Linux, you have now got a choice of two steps
If there's a line that says "default=linux" (or something similar),
change it to read default=windows (or the label of your windows section)
or swap the positions of the windows and linux sections
** the first is the easiest, if default=xxx isn't there, you can add
it above the first section header **
d) Open a command line (Xterm / terminal etc) and type "/sbin/lilo" (as
root, no quotes), lilo should print up the labels of each section with a *
beside the one to start first.
If you have problems, or there isn't a windows option, give me a shout :o)
