Startup and Booting question

Hey guys,
I got a small question, As my PC starts, for dual boot of ubuntu and windows 7 how do i make win 7 as the default choice, ie, on starting the selection is on ubuntu, how do i keep the selection on win 7?
As win 7 starts, i always have to press enter to log in the user tho i only got 1 without pass, i want it directly to go to the desktop when i press the power on button.

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).

I think: right-click Computer, Properties, Advanced System Settings, Advanced tab, Startup and Recovery, Settings and choose W7 as Default OS. You can choose the time to display the OS also.

Hi amigo max.

I think these 2 tutorials are what you're looking for Default Operating System - Change Default Boot OS (change the time until auto boot to about 1 second)
Log On Automatically at Startup
