Default xp/home problem

i have an annoying problem:
i had xp home installed on my computer, but it was having serious problems,so i formatted my hard drive. then i installed xp professional. no problems so far. now, though, when i boot my computer, i get the choice between xp home and pro. of course, xp home is gone, so it gives me an error if i try to load it.
basically, i'd like to get rid of the option so that xp pro loads automatically.

any suggestions?
thanks in advance.
