As pc boots, I have to choose between 3 XP's and one W2K. There is actually
only one XP installed. The others just don't want to go away..

Go to start>run and type in
msconfig
then hit okay, and click on the Boot ini. tab, look for the box that says
'check all boot paths'
click on that.

Go to System Properties\Advanced and Under Startup and Recovery section select the Settings button.When that Startup and Recovery opens select the Edit button and remove the unwanted OS'S there. Be careful you remove the ones that are not wanted. When finished Close out from there. You should have only the one XP OS showing on your next boot up

In msconfig, select the bootini tab. The select "verify all boot paths".
