Re: Linux Mint 10 "Julia" released!

I have installed "julia" on my desktop PC along with WinXP. Great program. Works fine. Only thing is by default, Mint boots. I want to boot WinXP by default. Since i am not very familiar with Linux-10 Julia, I would appreciate any help in changing Boot default from "Julia" to "WinXP"

No problem. It doesnot go away even if i remove it from the user group. But I managed to bypass it by setti...
