Look up Startup Manager.

I have it installed in Ubuntu. I would recommend installing Ubuntu then installing Startup Manager in Ubuntu. It will help you decide which is default and how long the timer is.

Actually editing the list order and names will require editing the file located at "/boot/grub/menu.lst." I recommend backing the file up first.

*NOTE* - Do not remove the alternative selections for the Linux distros.
