need help with boot ini file

I have just put windows XP Home on a friends computer.
He wanted a small partition and a large partition on the main drive, which I did with no problem.
When I installed XP I put it on the small partition(E) instead of the main partition(C).
When I realised what I had done I reinstalled it to the C partition and in Disk management I formatted the E partition.
When I boot up now I have 2 XP installs to choose from.
I know the Boot ini file can be edited in notepad but I have forgotten how :suprised:
Also how do I find out which entry is on which partition as deleting the wrong entry would mess it up.
Regards Alan.

Right click on My computer from desktop.
Properties/advanced/startup and recovery -> settings.

In the top you will see your start up string, under that is an edit button that opens boot.ini in notepad.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
