    You can change the startup disk in system preferences, or you can hold the option key on boot to select the startup disk.

    Also note that using the Option key will only change it for that boot cycle. That is a temporary change and when you reboot it will go back to OSX if your computer normally boots to that.

    That is nice because then you don't have to go through the setting the startup disk in Vista and then again in OSX every time you want to change.

    Since I use the Windows installation so seldom, the Option key is the way to go for me- as it may be for you if you don't continually use Vista.
