This file should have at least two boot sections : one for Linux and one
Windows. The first one in the list will be the default one.
However, you can override this by typing (as root) :
lilo -D <label>
where label is what you've got configured for the Windows partition in
lilo config file. After this, until you run lilo again, the Windows
partition will be the default boot.
