If Win2K is located on the first partition of the hard drive, and is labeled as bootable, then use a Win95 / 98 boot disk and from the prompt do a fdisk /mbr command.

This will delete the master boot record, and default to booting Windows.

However, I am not sure if the Win2K bootloader can boot anything but Microshaft operating systems or not.
