Getting out of 2000 Ugrade ?

I had a very fresh copy of W98 on my PC and decided to try running the W2000 upgrade.
I have an A-bit BE6 mother board and a Seagate Hdd.
The upgrade failed because 2000 could not recognise the 'HPT366 UDMA Controller. It also whinged about a couple of my programs.
I've decide to scrap the upgrade until I can get hold of all the upgraded drivers that I will need.
Now, when I start my PC, it gets past the memory test and wants to start windows, it asks me to select an operating system to start, either W98 or W2000 Professional Setup.
How can I get rid of this question at start up ?

Regards
Rowan

There is a hidden file in your root directory of your boot drive, namely
c:\
it is called boot.ini your can edit this file and make c:\windows
your default Os, or your can make a boot disk from win98 with fdisk and sys.com on this disk.  Now boot from the floppy disk and then type fdisk /mbr
and after doing this type sys c:
it maybe safer to edit the boot.ini and remove the reference to windows 2000
If you need more help then let me know.
If your not sure, then do nothing and let me know and I will give you step by step instuctions.

Ps the boot.ini is hidden and read only, so you will have strip the attributes off the file before proceding.
