Sometimes life is easier than you think. If you fouled up your bootmenu (by istalling Win98) then you can easily reair things. Boot from the WinXP CD and press F10 during the initial stage (while it's loading all sorts of drivers). When you get to theRecovery Console you log into Windown, enter your password and issue the command fixboot. It will rebuild the necessary bootfiles.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
