Is it possible to change the default start option from the GRUB command line?

I have 2 options Fedora and Other. Currently the Fedora is the default. Is it possible to change it to Other from the GRUB command line, and make it permanent?

thanks.

sry for that. I asked if its possible to change it from the GRUB COMMAND LINE, not from the terminal. I dont have access to that. –  Narven Dec 3 '10 at 11:49

in /boot/grub/menu.lst is option default, you should set it for another value, for exmaple - 0 - feodra, 1, other

This will be overwritten each time update-grub runs - e.g. after every kernel change. The file even says "# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE # # It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates # from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub " - therefore, the settings should go into /etc/default/grub –  Piskvor Dec 3 '10 at 11:15
