    Either shutdown and restart or go to the Apple menu and choose restart. Make sure you press and hold the option key at the "bong" sound. You will have a choice of which OS to start.

    One other thing you can do. In System Preferences->System-Startup Disk you can choose the OS that will restart be default (i.e. not holding down the option key).
