Hi I am an absolute beginner where Linux is concerned but really wish to escape MS. I have installed open office 11.0 with the KDE 4 kernel as a double boot alongside Vista there are a number of issues to be sorted with 11.0 before I can make a complete change the most crucial being the lack of wifi connectivity. So far as open office is concerned my computer has no wifi! However that is not the point of this post, Short term I just want to change the boot order in grub so that it defaults to vista automatically. Can someone please advise in very clear and simple terms how I can achieve this in very simple steps. I know it involves altering the menu.lst file which I even found but could not open. Help please?
You can change the order via YaST->System->Boot Loader. Then on the
list select the item, then hit the ‘set as default’ button and then

Thanks very much for your help. Now I can read all the introduction material at my leisure and work on the other issues. I am begining to get the feel of this and I like it!
