Simple Boot.ini for Win XP?

I run multiple operating systems using a third party Boot Manager.

When I select Win XP from the boot Manager Menu, I get a second Menu displayed due to the boot.ini file.

I know that setting time out to 0 seconds will skip the second menu, but I suffer from OCD.

Is there a simple boot.ini which causes the XP OS in the designated partition to load without being suggestive of using a Multi-OS menu?
