    i just have one OS installed.

    this is what those instructions gave me:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0
    )partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional"

    I guess he is not really banned.... Other question: Do you know if the above boot.ini will work. I don't know why there are so many lines as soon as I press "submit reply" didn't type it that way.

    Add the "/fastdetect" from yoyo's post and then change the timeout value to 1. That way the boot screen will still come up but you probably wont see it.
