Open up boot.ini in the root directory, and remove the line that has the WindowsXP Pro label in it. Be careful to remove *only* that line.

If you don't like doing that, you good go Start->Settings->Control Panel->System->Advanced->Startup & Recovery, and under System Startup, set the time to wait to 0 seconds, with Windows 2000 selected as your default OS.
