I've done that .
Windows should be the original install, with Windows.0 being the second install. But...don't assume, check. If you have programs installed in one, but not the other...that's easy to check. Boot into each and find the programs you want to keep and remember which one that is.
As for which you are in...that depends on which you boot into. Both should show up initially when you boot. If you do not choose one or the other, it goes into whichever is set up as the default install.
You can boot into the one you want to keep and just delete the Windows folder of the other. Then follow the procedures outlined in Removing the invalid entries from Boot.ini - http://windowsxp.mvps.org/bootopt.htm and everything should be OK.
