    Control Panel->System Dialog->Performance tab->Startup and Recovery Button->change the boot options from there.

    That should help, beyond that you might need to edit some .sys files.
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX

    IIRC, the file is boot.ini, stored in the root directory of the boot drive (like C:\boot.ini).
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
