Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.

I only have one OS on the computer I am using at the moment. But I beleive you can do it in Msconfig - Boot Tab. Select the option and below click "run as default"

I personally use EasyBCD to change and edit all my multi boot systems - If you are regularly switching between operating systems you may also find their iReboot useful to set the next OS to boot each time you reboot.
