Instructions are in the Documentation here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto/ChangeDefaultOS

which is linked from this page:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto

which is the first entry in the search results if you search "grub" in the Ubuntu documentation....;)

another option is to go to synpatic and install startup manager. It (SUM) is GUI based which allows you to set OS defaults, timer, etc, etc. It also writes the changes to the menu.lst.
