Thanks, this works.

I have now a problem;
I put this "GRUB_DEFAULT="2>4"" in /boot/grub/grub.cfg and
it was OK.

However, this is also a machine on which I build kernels (from kernel
tree) and after "make && make install" of a kernel tree, the
/boot/grub/grub.cfg is rewritten and the GRUB_DEFAULT entry
Is there a way to avoid rewriting of this entry (maybe put it under some
/etc/grub.d ?
