Reformatted/reloaded computer shows 2 OS choices

I have a computer that was wiped and reloaded with Win2k.  It shows 2 OS choices on bootup.  The first is correct.  I know I need to edit the boot.ini file but I'm not sure exactly how to edit it.  The text is below:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
C:\="Microsoft Windows"

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The easy way is to right click on My Computer, choose Properties, then go to the Advanced tab. Next, click on the Startup and Recovery button.

Where you see Default Operating System, choose your win2k installation from the drop down list.

Then uncheck the box below it that lets the machine display the list of operating systems.

Now you'll be able to start straight into Windows and not see that list anymore.

I forgot to tell you to click OK on both screens, but that's all you really need to do... then just go ahead and reboot.
