Dose this help?

2.Now configure Darwin Boot Loader to allow you to choise which partition to boot from . By Copying,
/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist
to desktop. Editing to:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Quiet Boot</key>
<string>No</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string></string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string></string>
<key>Boot Graphics</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key></dict>
<string>1280x1024x32@70</string></dict>
</dict>
</plist>
Copying back to location and authenticating with password.

Again all thanks to the support of the experts.
This also sets my graphics mode, so make your own choice

3. With the 'Quiet Boot' and 'Timeout' keys in place I can now use Chain0, edit my boot.ini and set my Windows XP drive to actve. Allowing me to boot into Windows or choise OS x86.
