* Computer always gives me an option of which OS to boot *

  1. Hi. I recently deleted my Windows 98 and installed Windows 2000. Now every time I boot up my computer I always get a screen that asks me to choose which operating system I want to load. It says to choose between "Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" or "Microsoft Windows". I can pick one and hit enter and it loads up fine... I just find it annoying that it asks me all the time... I only have one OS,... always load Win2k already!!

    Of course it defaults to "Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" after a countdown of 30 seconds, but I just find it annoying. Is there any way I can tell it to stop asking?? Thanks!!

    just for the record, you open boot.ini in notepad and change the timeout to 0.
