Edit the "default=" line in /etc/grub.conf so that the Vista entry is default. Note the numbering starts at 0.

Login as root, find the directory /etc and edit the file grub.conf using your favourite text editor. You should see something like this:

default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd1,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
password --md5 $1$BgMHP4i/$/rvXDSa1468xGleqC/gU61
title Fedora (2.6.25.9-40.fc8)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25.9-40.fc8 ro root=/dev/md0
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.25.9-40.fc8.img
title Memtest86+ (1.70)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/memtest86+-1.70 ro root=/dev/md0

But one of your entries will be for vista. eg. If I want my machine to boot memtest by default I would change the default=0 to default=1.

Try default=2 as this would boot "other" which is what fedora has called vista in grub.
