hello,
got a dual boot with Red Hat 8.0 and WinXP

Linux is first on the list - can I reverse this so if I do nothing XP will boot instead of Linux?

Are you using Grub or Lilo as the boot loader? Lilo is the easier of the two to modify.

Redhat 7.3 gave you the option of Lilo or Grub, but I have no idea about 8.0. From memory the default setting was Lilo with 7.3 soooooo it could well be Grub with 8.0. Reconfiguring Lilo is reasonably easy by going to the system setup/startup options area, but it would be best to check with some one who is running 8.0 just in case there have been alterations.

One option is to post a apecific query to Graham, as he may be of more help with grub.
