	The easiest way is to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file to say
something different under the "default 0" entry.  Say, change the 0 to a
1.  Since GRUB reads its menu file every boot, it is functionally

	Actually, more flexible, come to think of it.  You can do a lot
of restart-hackery with SysV scripts and sed.  Yikes!
