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.

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?
