    Yes there are startup options that can be specified. Safe mode uses most of them, but you could create a seperate mode using only the options you want. I am not sure it is exactly the same as w2k, but in w2k the startup line is in c:\boot.ini. It is a read-only file but by reading the option lines, you could add additional "modes" by adding lines utilizing the command option you like.

    While this is possible, I don't know of any advantage you would gain as most of the options disable some portion of the OS.
