Hi, I'm using Ubuntu with Windows XP. At startup GRUB is loaded and Ubuntu is my default OS to boot from. How do I make Windows my default OS? Thanks!

You should be able to just edit /etc/grub.conf . The first non-comment line will be something like
default = 0
meaning the default boot image is the first one listed. Change that number to the zero-based index of the entry for Windows XP in the file, then save the file and reboot.
