Edit /etc/lilo.conf

Add or edit the line marked "default" to be the same as the label you want for the default boot system.

So if you have (for example):

other=/dev/hda1
        optional
        label=Windows

the default line (probably in the block at the top) should read:

default=Windows

Oh, you need to run /sbin/lilo as root after making the edit
