Removing OS from bootup

I've got an old installation of Windows ME on one partition, and XP Home on another. Can anybody give me any guidance in how to remove the Windows ME installation from the computer bootup?

I don't enjoy having to choose from the OS selections menu everytime the computer's booted ;)

Thanks for any help

Properties of My Computer, Advanced tab, click Settings in the Startup and Recovery area. Make sure XP is the default operating system then untick 'Time to display list of operating systems' or just decrease the time.
