    Need some help with dual boot ...

    I used to know how to do this ... but have forgotten.

    What I am trying to do is change the length of time for you to make a decision which system you want to boot into. It is currently at 28 seconds and I would like to get it down to no more then 10.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I figured it out.

    You go to RUN ... msconfig ... then to your boot.ini ... there you can set the time.

    Thanks for the response CommanderCody.

    I also forgot to mention that I am running XP Pro
