Yes it is possible. Sorry I thought said "It boots into Win2k and wont boot XP"? If you can get back to Win2k you could edit it.

One strategy to use when you are moving stuff around is to add menu entries for both. In other words you would have four:

First where the Win2k drive is first ->
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Primary" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows XP Secondaryl" /fastdetect

Then when the XP drive is first ->
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Secondary" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows XP Primary" /fastdetect

Then later you can remove the lines you do not want to use.

Cheers!
Robert

Yeah it did boot into 2000 but not XP until I screwed it up. Also it would be helpful if I knew the directory of BOOT.INI for Windows 2000 and XP

In both places it is the root. So C:/boot.ini
