Hello. I have a win98 computer..attempted to install win2k, failed. but when i turn on pc, it tells me if i want win2k setup, or win98. i want to remove the win2k setup line, so that it goes straight to win98, since i couldn't install win2k. i tried removing the line from the boot.ini, but the wink2k setup line changed to "wink2k (default)". I deleted the boot.ini file, then win98 would not load. I restored it, and it works fine now. but i want to delete the win2k setup line, and want the pc to go straight to win98. how do i do that? thanx.
