Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

On startup of Windows after the BIOS has done its work I get the following
error:

Invalid BOOT.INI File
Starting from C:/WINDOWS

I'm running the latest Windows XP with all the updates on a Dell Dimension
Pentium II with the latest Phoenix BIOS.

Thanks,

Richard..

Do this:
- Click Start / Run
- Type this: notepad c:\boot.ini {OK}
- Now copy and paste the contents of this file into your reply
so that we can tell you what's wrong.
