I'm looking at SP2 control panel and I don't have anything that says "startup manager" so I guess that's normal. What was it and what did it do? I installed SP2 immediately on my new XP laptop and wasn't all that aquainted with what used to be there.

k after the new installtion , a couple of things came unexpected..
when windows starts up , it gives me 2 options to select
1. microsoft windows xp pro
2. microsoft windows

how do i get rid of the option 2 and make it so it loads with option 1 as default w/o asking from now on ?

I merged your other post with this one.

To answer your startup manager question go to Start | Run and type msconfig

Go to the startup tab and uncheck anything you don't want to run at startup.

Nero has an update patch that works with SP2:
