Do you mean that when you start the computer you get a menu with two versions of Windows listed that asks which version of Windows to start?  If you are running Windows XP or 2000 you can try this:

Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties"

Click on the "Advanced Tab" and under the section that says "Startup and Recovery" click the "Settings" button

Under the "System Startup" section you'll see a dropdown box with the heading "Default Operating System"

Use the drop down box to select which Operating System you want to start all the time.

Then uncheck the box that says "Time to display list of operating systems" then click "OK"

If I'm interpreting your question wrong and the above procedure doesn't help with what you're asking please let me know.  Thanks!

If you don't need the other OS, then you could remove from the computer.

The boot menu, where a dual boot option would be configured, is contained in the "boot.ini" file within Windows.  It is usually stored on the root drive (generally C:\).
