With XP you can modify the boot.ini file which is in th C:\

However, I believe Vista doesn't use the boot.ini file anymore and would probably ignore it.

Vista uses a Boot Configuration Data file instead to hold the boot details. Apparantly it's a bit more flexible, but it's command prompt based using the BCDEdit Command-Line Options

HAve a look at the technet pages here for more informaion
