I have dual boot with winXP.  After upgrading the
kernel to 2.6.11, it now default boots to the new

change it back?

Hello. As root, u need to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and change the line that says default=<value> to the number of the line where your windows is...

for you to know witch is, just count the lines that starts with title, and you'll know the number. as an example, where is a sample of a grub with many options (without windows). Remember, the count starts at 0 and NOT 1,
but just for you to know:
this grub boots kernel 2.6.11-1.14_FC3


default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.14_FC3)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.14_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.770_FC3)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.770_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.10-1.770_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.741_FC3)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.741_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.10-1.741_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img
