just wondering if there is a way to cleanly uninstall win2k from my win98/2k dual boot, removing all win2k related files and the startup dual boot screen.

yep, boot to a w98 bootdisk and from the prompt type
sys c:
then reboot and make sure you have "show all files" in explorer
and delete the following files
boot.ini
bootsect.dos
ntdetect.com
ntldr
pagefile.sys (if located on c:)
and the x:\winnt files and the x:\program files folder on the winnt drive (not the c:\) where x:\ is the drive where you hve installed w2k
do this in the order listed!!
now if you have formatted the w2k partition to ntfs, it gets more involved
