i had the partitions setup before installing any os's:

winxp installed to ntfs partition (1)
eeebuntu installed to ext3 partition (2)
leftover partition is fat32 for shared data

i installed win & eeebuntu thru usb drives, then had to repair grub so ubuntu would boot.

now everything works but after i choose winxp from the grub bootloader, it takes me to anothermenu that ask me to choose from winxp & win7 rc. i used the same usb stick before to try out win7 but didnt like it on that computer, so went back to xp.

is there any way to get rid of that 2nd menu so it just goes straight to xp?

Yes...you can probably use EasyBCD to remove the Win 7 bootloader files from XP (install EasyBCD in XP, read instructions).


I used it for this purpose (to remove Win 7 beta boot files) eariler this year.
