You can change default system by editing the "default 0" line in /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Changing the sequence in which the kernels are listed is not possible as far as I know: It is updated whenever you change your kernel with the newest kernels going first.

What you can do is this: Add custom options (like Windows) before or after the autogenerated list of linux kernels. Just move the config section of those entries (starting with a "title" line) before/after "### (BEGIN|END) OF DEBIAN AUTOMATIC KERNELS LIST"-lines.

run this from the teminal

sudo apt-get install startup-settings

then go to System on your panel, then Administration and finally System Startup Settings

I have reached the same result as penqwin did.

"Couldn't find package startup-settings".

But I am using a swedish ubuntu-package. Perhaps I should use a swedish name on the startup-package?

Can you help with this problem?
