Default Linux and Vista dual-boot

I installed Linux, along with Vista and Xp, and now the default boot is to Linux. I can still choose Vista from the menu, but I want Vista to be the default boot. I want to add Linux to the boot menu that let's me choose between Vista and XP. I tried repairing the Vista start-up file, but the repair program didn't see the vista os. So how can I repair the start-up file?

Default Re: Linux and Vista dual-boot

grub change default - Google Search

If you used the Windows boot loader I doubt it would include an option for Linux, so use GRUB.

Disclaimer: I've never actually used Vista and I rarely use XP, so I may be wrong.
