    I set my PC up as dual boot, with XP on the C drive and 98 on the D (or is it E) drive. But when I boot under 98, during the boot process I get two options:
    - Windows XP Setup
    - Microsoft Windows (which is Windows 98)

    Of course the cursor by default lands on Windows XP Setup, so if I do nothing that launches automatically and I have to quit, restart, etc.

    I figure I must have installed this when I was initially setting up XP. Is there some way to get rid of it? I no longer need to "set up" XP, and want it to just boot into 98 by default when I select that drive as my boot drive.

    Thanks - and great to find this forum. I'm a knowledgeable Mac guy but pretty uneducated when it comes to the PC.

    - Bob

    Just to clarify a little - these options appear during the boot process (i.e. in white on a black screen). Can I safely uninstall this "Windows XP Setup" option, and if so, how should I do it?

    Anybody?
