Okay, I'll aid you.

Well, so you lost your bootmenu? A required file for this is boot.ini, it should be on the C: drive.

did you find it?
No? Then you should use search from start menu.
Yes? Right-click on it and edit it.
Copy the text and post it here.

Then we could see what might be the problem.


You have a common dual boot problem, usually they have a timer to let you choose which one you want to use. You can either configure a setting in the boot.ini file, or
repair on your WIN2K.
