    i'm at my girlfriends parents house now, and i havent used win98 in years...i cant remember how to edit the boot menu. i cant seem to find boot.ini to edit it. there was an incomplete windows xp upgrade, and they would like the 'windows xp home setup' option on the menu to disappear, and just boot to win98. i know it must be something simple, can anyone help my brain fart?

    Create a boot floppy. Boot off it into DOS, then do:

    fdisk /mbr
