    The file in the root dir is only for Win9x.

    Easier way to edit boot.ini :

    1. Hit 'Window key' + 'R' to open up the "Run" dialog box
    2. Type "msconfig" and hit 'Enter' key
    3. 4th tab at top of application is boot.ini options
    4. Go Nuts!

    ps: in case you don't know, 'window key' is the key between 'ctrl' and 'alt' keys with the little windows logo on it
