You need to edit GRUB's config file:


There, you put your linux partition as default.

title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.8-1.523)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.8-1.523 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
    initrd /initrd-2.6.8-1.523.img

# section to load Windows 
title Windows
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1

default in this example is 0, the first entry of your GRUB menu.
