Description James Cook 2001-08-09 00:23:58 UTC
Description of problem:
During the install, it is possible to change which OS will be selected by
default after the install is finished.  On my work machine, I need win2k to
load by default (I know, I know) but the installer seems to ignore my
preference in the matter.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the OS up to the point of the GRUB config screen
2. Input a label for the Win2k partition and check the box to indicate that
it's to be the default
3. Finish the install and restart
Additional info:

It's real simple to fix the problem once you're in Linux, simply move the
correct block to the top of the boot options area of the file and it works
as expected.
