I have a macbook and did the bootcamp thing and loaded windows vista on the laptop. Now it boots automatically to windows unless I hold down option to choose which one to use. How can I switch the default OS to Apple?

Thanks

Open System Preferences, go to the Startup Disk pane, and select your OS X volume and click the restart button. This will set your startup volume to OS X.

How do I get to the System Preferences is it the same as windows hit F8 several times on boot up and get the boot up menu?

No system preferences are accessed once you are fully booted into OS X. Just click on the apple in the upper left corner and system preferences will be fourth down the list. Then do what the Dr. ordered
