Is there a way to boot another OS or a different kernel the next time the machine reboots, but on the reboot after that go back to the original default?

echo "savedefault --default=2 --once" | grub --batch

where 2 means to boot the 3rd menu entry in grub.conf.

Change 2 to the appropriate menu entry number you want to boot next time.
