The options are in the boot.ini file in which you can edit.

The worst bit on the machine I looked at yesterday was a 30 second delay
until XP automatically started- editing the boot.ini can reduce the delay or
remove the option if you want.

The article is in the current "issue" out today. It's free and give you a
lot of information on windows boot up.

It will show you how to speed up your boot.

Well i found the easy way to fix it. I used to use Style XP and that was what
caused it to have both a bootscreen option and regular option so i just told
style xp to repair the boot.ini and it worked!
