If someone has one physical drive with Windows 98 on C:\windows and
Windows XP on D:\windows, what should their boot.ini file have in it
so that they can chose which one to boot with? Thank you in advance
for all replies.

Something like this:
---------------------------------------------------
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
C:\="Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition"
--------------------------------------------------
(I've changed the names of the OS)
