Making Windows the Default Boot with Grub 2

Having installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my mother's computer, I wanted to fix the boot process so that if she didn't do anything, it would boot into Windows as usual.

I went to edit menu.lst, as I have done time out of mind, and it wasn't there.

It turns out that Ubuntu now uses grub2, which has a different way of doing things.
