Default startup disk

I have 2 disks in my G5 both with OS X installed. One is named Marco HD, the other Untitled 1. At the moment my machine defaults to Untitled 1 for its startup disk, this disk is my backup disk which I installed after I had a problem with my main disk 'Marco HD'. Although I can easily get into Marco HD to startup by holding down 'alt' when I power up I would like it to be the disk it uses to startup by default.

How can I acheive this?
