    change the startup disk setting in your Vista control panel. I keep mine set to OS X, then when I want to boot into Vista, I hold down the option key during startup, then click the Windows button.

    He he, I find it strange that it defaults to Windows rather than OSX...

    I have the same problem but I can't see how to change it in XP - there's a "Startup Disk" icon in Control Panel but when I double-click it I get the message "This software is not compatible with this computer"...

    Kind of agree with you, a bit like putting diesel in your Ferrari :eek:

    But until there's a decent personal finance package on OSX I need the help of Old Bill for running MS Money.

    You can change the default. Go to System Preferences (OS X) or Control Panel (Windows) and select Start Up Disk. Here you can which drive to boot.
