W2k Installed Twice on the Same Partition--How to Uninstall One of Them

Hi,

We have a computer that has Windows 2000 Pro installed twice on the C: partition in dual boot mode.  One of them complains of a mission or corrupt ntoskrnl.exe; the other works fine.  We've figured out how to solve the ntoskrnl.exe problem, and we want to uninstall the other version of W2k.

How do we uninstall one of the W2k installs and return to a single boot system?

Thanks in advance!!

Best,

the only way i can think to do that is to boot into the good install of 2k delete the install directory of the bad install then modify the boot.ini to stop the option of the other OS comming up during boot
