As I recall, I 'blessed' (apples' term)  the partition that I wanted to boot most often and used the hold the alt key when I wanted to use the other OS.  Remember, apple starts partition numbers at 0 (zero). 

There used be a facility rEFIt that did a reasonable job, but I found it only made a slow boot process even slower. 

If you want to multiple boot, put grub on the blessed partition on your next install. 

I needed the space osx was using some years ago, so no longer dual boot, hence my haziness.
