Boot loader help

Last night I installed XP, then Windows 7, then Ubuntu. I thought this was the best way, however, when I start windows via 'other OSes' in Grub, I am lead to a new Windows boot loader that allows me to choose 7 or 'Older version of Windows'

What I would like to do is not use Grub if possible. Grub takes too long to load IMO, and I would like to automatically boot to W7 with an option to go to XP and Ubuntu. Thus, I would like to boot to the Windows loader and have an option to run Ubuntu. Is there a way that I can do this?

I have Ubuntu's grub/menu.lst open and could change the default number to '6' or whatever, but that seems like a tedious workaround and, honestly, I want to see how quickly W7 can actually boot up :)

Any and all help would be appreciated. As I continue my venture into linux, I realize that I am somewhat a noob, but am curious and determined.
