    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Win XP"

    This is what the drive say in Win 2K
    Win2000 (C 14.3G
    Win XP (F 14.3G

    From partition magic:

    Win 2K C Active
    Win XP (F None

    Shouldn't be the case, but perhaps the Win2K partition comes first after all ... this is unscientific, but try to change
    Code:
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Win XP"
    to
    Code:
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Win XP"
    . I have no great hope that this helps, but give it a try anyway.
