:tazz: i have a box that allows me to choose xp or 98se as my os. if left alone at boot, it eventually defaults to 98. i am wondering what file presents me with the choice. i suspect it is some batch or script file that i can edit to switch the default. thank you.

If i remember correctly booting into the recovery console and using the command FIXBOOT will let you set up a choice of which OS you wish to boot into. I am not 100% sure so i would wait for someone to confirm or do a google search (have to head out in a few minutes thats all)
