    Before I wiped out my dual boot system last week, I had previously found a way in W2K's Control Panel to set my system to boot to Win98(which all my family uses) in a certain number of seconds unless I tell it to use W2K.

    But I can't remember where it was now. And would like to set it that way again.

    Can someone tell me, please?

    thanks
    (I've heard there is a way to alter the boot.ini file, but I Don't want to do it that way)
