Defaulting Boot partitions

I've been trying to do multi-boot on my new imac and so far it's been going alright.
I've been trying to install a stripped down version of windows xp (and later maybe a version of linux.) So far Windows hasn't been able to boot because of an unrecognized driver issue, but that is something I can figure out on my own.
But I would like to know how to make Leopard the default booting partition. Right now, when my computer is booted up, it automatically goes and shows me a few lines of code and tells me Windows could now boot ( Meaning it's defaulting to the Windows partition --and not the leopard partition which is what I want.
So far I've had to hold down the option key on startup to choose the leopard partiton manually.
Is there a way to default the leopard partition on startup? &/ or is there a boot application that allows you to choose which operating system/HD partiton you want without holding option down?
thank you if anyone can chime in!
