how about having alternate grub menu files? one with windows as default  
and one with linux as default and just copy the one in for the OS you want  
to boot....write a shell script to do it or sumthin.........and then use  
one of those tools to mount linux partitions in windows and have a batch  
script to copy in the file with linux as default
