If there is only one boot path then all you have to do is set the timeout= to 0 seconds. You can do it in msconfig or by deselecting the "Display list of operating systems for..." in the System Properties Startup and Recovery options. (Remove the check from the box and the value will be adjusted accordingly).

How many boot paths are there in the boot.ini file? Maybe the corresponding Vista entry is already deleted and all you want to do is have no boot menu show at startup? If the pc boots to the correct default Operating System then you can just change the timeout= value in the boot.ini file. Paste the contents of your boot.ini file here so we can have a look at it.
No floppy drive.
Well.. when I just let it boot up without making a selection I get a black
screen saying there's been a serious error. Sure was I formatted the partition where Vista was installed :-) Here's the boot.ini.
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT
I searched the drive for bcdedit.exe but no luck. Guess I could always reload Vista and see if I could make the change before I blow it away.
Probably should be asking these question in a Vista beta group.
Thanks for the help
