Pata and Sata dual boot issues

  1. i have one sata raid 1 array and one pata 80gb drive (in bios boot priority as SCSI)
    i have winxp pro on the raid 1 array and win2k on the 80gb drive (in bios boot priority as HD0)

    both operating systems boot.ini files are:

    [boot loader]
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

    [boot loader]
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /

    my problem is that i want to boot to winxp 95% if the time.. i can just go into the bios and change the boot priority but that is a pain.
    what advice can i get on settings for the boot.ini file so that i can boot to either drive/os from and have it set to boot from the raid 1 array??
