this isn't particularly easy to fix, as the kernel post-install script would have to figure out what you'd done to your grub.conf. If Jeremy/Peter have any ideas that could be a quick-fix for this, I'm all ears, but I don't think there's a great deal we can do this in situation.

Yes, you will need to change the post-install script. But I think that it should be easy to fix. You will need to parse grub.conf. Look which entry is the default and check if the default boot entry (seperate by title) contains kernel or chainloader. If the default boot entry contains "kernel", make the new kernel the default. If the default boot entry contains "chainloader" keep it as the default. In this case, depending on where you add the new kernel entry, you might have to update the number on the default line.

Fixed in anaconda to not set UPDATEDEFAULT=yes for the case where you're default to another OS.
