Removing Dual Boot Setup

I had a Windows XP/98SE dual boot setup I no longer need the 98SE part of it. I have removed 98SE and re-sized the harddrive into one partition, my problem is removing the multiple choice on boot up, I have looked at the boot.ini file but I am not sure what entry should be there if any, also where can I find a guide to the DOS commands that are available on Windows XP Pro, and last but not least does anyone know where to get cheap cables as I am sure that £15.00 for a ATA 133 IDE ribbon cable is well over the top, especially when they only cost $1.95 on an American website.
Thank For Any Help Recieved

this is my boot.ini for xp pro only

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


so if you have another entry which states windows that needs to be deleted but make sure you back up the boot.ini before tinkering

Thanks A Lot for that it seems to have done the job.

Try Windows XP Help. It should give you a list. Go to Help, and Search for "MD-DOS command", and you should get a glossary (at least that's the case for my Windows 2000 OS).
