The option to boot from one OS or the other is in the file boot.ini, which you can look at by clicking Start - run, typing in msconfig and clicking OK. Click on the BOOT.INI tab. You will find two lines such as multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect.

I shan't give any advice on removing the unwanted one because I have no personal experience of doing this and don't want to give you false information. Hopefully another forum member will come in with more expert advice.
