    Hai I have both Win98 and Win XP in my PC. Now I would like to hide Windows 98 from the boot screen in which it allows the user to choose between the two OS.
    But if I go into WinXP directly without choice of selecting, is it possible for me to run Win 98 when needed?
    Please help me.

    Set the value to 1. That way, you can get the bootscreen if you press a key.
