Default Help! Installed vista!!

I just installed vista and everytime i startup the computer it asks me whether i would like to boot vista or previous version of windows and i have to select vista everytime.I would like to know how to make it boot directly into vista everytime without making me pick.If you know how to do this i would appreciate it very much.I did select the previous version once and nothing is there.Vista deleted the xp install i had.So i dont see why that option is still there.Please help
Thanks

1. Right-Click on My Computer and select properties
- (In Vista you can select View System Information from the Computer window.)
2. From the System Properties window select the Advanced tab
3. Push the Settings button under Startup and Recovery
4. Select the default OS from the Default operating system dropdown box.
5. Click OK twice.

you can also change the time it shows the os menu. if you change it to 1 second then you wont really see it but if you do want to use the os you can still quickly select it
