    Windows XP is the default OS, when I startup, if I dont hold down ALT (Option) then it goes to XP, how can I make OS X the default os?

    BTW, I searched but couldnt find anything.

    There's a "Startup Disk" section in System preferences - you should be able to just change it to OSX in there.

    BootCamp also installs a Startup Disk Control Panel in Windows, so you can set it there as well.
