Getting rid of Dual Boot

I'm sure I've seen it somewhere, but I'm blowed if I can find it now. Mt wife's PC has 2 versions of XP - the live version on C:/ and a security copy on G:/ (I've never trusted system restore and this forum has proved me right many times). Anyhow, C:/ is the only partition in the Primary Partition; G:/ is in the extended partition. However, on boot up, the Dual Boot options screen always appears offering both versions of XP to boot up (I've not had the courage to try the G:/ drive version - perhaps I should(?)!). Anyhow, how do I stop this and get the system to boot straight into the C:/ partition?

Edit the boot.ni file to read

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Yours could be "Microsoft Windows XP Professional Editon"

the rest is the same

Click Start, Control Panel, System, Advanced, Settings [third].

UNcheck: Time to display list of operating systems.

Then Click OK.

Thanks to you both - Powerless - that's the one I was thinking of.
