Dual boot question-Vista and XP Professional

When my boot manager comes up it always boots to Vista vs. Older Version of Windows (XP) I do have 45 seconds to choose the OS but my USB keyboard will not work during this process. How do I change this so it will boot to XP vs. Vista if I turn on my system and forget to select XP? Yes, I do have USB keyboard enabled in my bios. Any help would be great!

Ok while in vista land right click my computer, properties, the on left advanced system settings, then under startup and recovery click settings tab, there it is top one pick over version instead of vista from the drop down tab. Change how long you get to pick whatever you desire.
