When using grub from Fedora Core 3 to boot into Fedora/WinXP, the default contiguration is to boot into the first OS by default.

According to the manual, the line "default=0" causes the first OS to be booted. Removing this line has no effect - the first OS is still booted into instead of there being just a menu.
