disabling windows 7 auto boot

I have windows 7 installed on my "C" drive and XP on "D" but I want XP to be my default OS for the time being. How do I change to boot process to make XP boot automatically and windows 7 the one that needs to be selected at boot up if I want to run it.
Thank you

Go to method #2, step 7. Once EasyBCD is installed in XP, you can easily change the default OS.
