Boot Camp Always Booting to Windows

I partitioned my hard drive using bootcamp and I put windows 7 on my computer. Now whenever I start my computer it automatically wants to go to windows 7 by default. I have to hold down the option key to switch it to Mac OSX. I am using Snow Leopard as the Os for mac. How can I fix this.

Can I delete the Windows 7 space on the hard drive and be fine, or will the computer not start properly since the Windows 7 has become the default?

    Boot to Mac. Then go to System Preferences, Startup Disk.
    Set the startup disk to your Mac partition.
    If you really want to get rid of Windows completely, use the Boot Camp Assistant application on your Mac to do it.

    Thank you so much. I have asked you quite a bit of questions ever since I switched to a mac back in June. You have been very helpful to me. I appreciate you taking your time to answer them even when most of them were stupid questions that I could have probably looked up myself.

    You are doing a great job.
