Choosing operating system when booting up

Hello, I have 2 hard drives in my computer, an 80gig Maxtor with XP Pro and a 20gig Maxtor with no operating system on it. Recently I installed XP Pro on my 2nd hard drive(the 20gig one) and now during bootup it asks "What Operating system would you like to load?" or something like that. The choices are obviously "Windows XP Professional(from the 20gig drive) and Windows XP Professional(from the 80gig drive). I want the computer to boot up from the 80gig drive EVERY time. Is there a way that I can eliminate this choice menu and have it load from the same drive everytime? Thanks for any and all help.

Go to Start> Control Panel> System> 'advanced' tab> startup and recovery 'settings' button. As long as you're booting to the default choice, untick the 'time to display...' option and you'll boot up straightaway without the bootloader options showing up.
