to change the boot menu, you need to edit a file on
your machine called /etc/lilo.conf

there will be many different image sections listed, #
out any ones that you don't want and then run
/sbin/lilo in a terminal window - it will * the
default operating system and list the others you have
setup.  Make sure that list is ok before re-booting! I
belive the top listing is the default, so cut and
paste win 2k to there.  The delay is in miliseconds -
don't set it too low!  If you get stuck, mail me or
the list your lilo.conf file and i/we will edit it for

Will leave it to someone else to sort out your modem,
hope thats vaguely helpful...
