Default Bypass OS select screen during boot?!?!

i downloaded new boot screens for my windows xp. I also downloaded a program called logon ui boot randamizer that said it would change my boot screen, now what it did is it made my system think i had two OS, changing the boot screen of the seconds one, so when my computer boots up it stops at a screen that asks which OS i want to boot up. My question is, is there a way to bypass that screen and always load the OS i want, or is there a way to just delete the newly created OS and just have my original one so that screen doesnt appear anymore? Also is ther an easier way to change th boot screen? And is there a free program that does it for you without creating anotehr OS and thus creating more problems for me?

go to start, run then type "C:\boot.ini"

remove information about any other operating system appart from what you're using

and delete the "timeout=x" line
