Default 2 hdd two OS problem


I have two physical Harddrives partitioned

I have on the first one Windows XP and I installed Windows Vista
Beta on the other drive on a partition.
Now windows boots the Windows Vista First and when I boot
I get a screen with Miscosoft Windows and Microsoft Windows Vista Beta..... When I select "Microsoft Windows" It takes me to the Windows Vista boot , but when I choose Windows Vista It takes me to the Original OS on the first HDD...

I guess what I want to ask you is , How can I change the boot sequence within Windows XP and not have windows vista boot up ?

Thank you

Pentium 4 Prescott 3.0 E (478 socket)
Radeon 7500 64mb (I know ... (^_^)
when i get around to it)
Samsung PC3200 512mb x 2 (DUAL SOCKET)
