well back to the drawing board I must go..
When I reboot I get a screen pausing for me to choose which operating system I 
want...only has one..There is a way to bypass this screen totally, but I don't 
recall now how I did this..Wondering if I disabled the boot.ini all together or 
I can wait it out for about 20 seconds and it continues on with its boot up, 
but who wants to wait it out..maybe I can cut the time from 20 seconds down to 
1 or something..
I just can't recall why this is popping up or how to bypass it.
Any clues anyone?

  Hey Trapper,

  Google gave up this:
  BootVis.exe Tool for System Manufacturers
  Updated: September 19, 2003

  About Bootvis.exe
  Bootvis.exe is a performance tracing and visualization tool that Microsoft 
designed to help PC system designers and software developers identify 
performance issues for boot/resume timing while developing new PC products or 
supporting software.

  Please note that Bootvis.exe is not a tool that will improve boot/resume 
performance for end users. Contrary to some published reports, Bootvis.exe 
cannot reduce or alter a system's boot or resume performance. The boot 
optimization routines invoked by Bootvis.exe are built into Windows XP. These 
routines run automatically at pre-determined times as part of the normal 
operation of the operating system.

  If you are an end-user seeking to resolve issues for boot/resume performance 
on your PC, we recommend that you contact the vendor from whom you purchased 
the PC. For information from Microsoft on specific issues, you can search 
Knowledge Base for Windows XP product issues related to "resume time."
