Yes, you may look /boot/grub/menu.lst and better to change in
/etc/default/grub (For Ubuntu),
there you may just change one line GRUB_DEFAULT=... and run
update-grub to update
/boot/grub/menu.lst; if you manually change /boot/grub/menu.lst,
that's not recommended,
because in future if you update ubuntu, get another kernel will
so you'd better to change /etc/default/grub, future kernel upgrades
would take care of that,
$ cat /etc/default/grub
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
# info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'
The default menu entry. This may be a number, in which case it
identifies the Nth entry in the generated menu counted from zero,
or the title of a menu entry, or the special string 'saved'. Using
the id may be useful if you want to set a menu entry as the default
even though there may be a variable number of entries before it.
For example, if you have:
menuentry 'Example GNU/Linux distribution' --class gnu-linux --id
then you can make this the default using:
