please define boot-priority, I dont quite know what that means.

Do you mean in which order they are displayed

Hi,
I think editing /boot/grub/menu.lst as root (use sudo gedit for example) is the only way.
Change the 0 in first uncommented line
default 0
to the item number you'd like to be the default
each new item starts with the keyword title, so make sure you count 'other operating systems' as well even though it is just
a separator

I want to put other kernel to boot by default, not the one it is now, but I don't know how to do it in grub. Many times I have to restart the system because very often I do not stant by the computer while it starts.

Jani Monoses (jani) said : #4

right, that can be done by changing the line that selects the default kernel.
so change default 0 to default 2 or whichever position the desired kernel is in the grub config file
