Hey people:)

can anyone explain the boot.ini to me. I know its the loader, but its what in it.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect


i know that the timeout is how long the boot menu will stay up for, but its the lines in bold that im interested in.

can someone just give me an explanation on what them lines represent


Thanks:):)
