Lilo ???

I use lilo as my boot manager and linux is the first choice on that list so it boots to linux after 10 seconds, I want to make windows the first choice...how do you change this...?

I think there is a lilo.conf file that needs to be edited. In there I believe you can change the boot order and load times.

vi /etc/lilo.conf # you can use any text editor

up in the global section there should be "default=linux"

Change it to whatever the title of you windows entry is.. should be windows

if there is not anything that says deault=blah... then add it.

Save the file... then issue this command

/sbin/lilo

Bam... your done

vi /etc/lilo.conf

Just move whichever image you want to boot to the top. Make sure you type lilo wants you've save the file.

I think you should vi your lilo.conf file and REMOVE the windows shit. Why would you want to boot to that crap anyway?
