    Here is a copy of mine, which dual-boots XP and 2000:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=3
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows 2000" /fastdetect

    However, you have said that your WinME is on C:
    Therefore, I trust your new WinXP is on another partition or another drive :)
    If your XP is on C: your WinME is history...

    Yes, my buddy dual-boots XP and Win98SE, and his boot.ini refers to 98 just like that.
    Sorry I can't be more precise (my memory!) but I believe you are on the right track :)
