    getting in win2000

    I am trying to remove win2000. I have winnt4 and win 95 already installed. This is a copy of my boot.ini file. I am trying to determine which statements I should delete. Thanks

    Here is a copy of my boot.ini file... Are there any second opinions before I delete any part of this file??? I hope there are. Thanks....


    [boot loader]
    timeout=1
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(4)\WINNT_
    2
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(4)\WINNT_2="Micro soft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Workstation Version 4.00"
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Workstation Version 4.00 [VGA mode]" /basevideo /sos
    C:\="Microsoft Windows"



    I am thinking that I should delete:


    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(4)\WINNT_2="Micro soft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

    and change:

    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(4)\WINNT_
    2

    to:

    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT


    Any input is accepted by the way, I have WIN2000 installed in folder called WINNT2. I can delete that once I get this file straighted out....

    Yes, that's what you want.
