How do I edit the boot.ini file in Windows 2000?

I want to edit the boot.ini file in Windows 2000 like I could in Windows NT, but I am not able to see the boot.ini file in Windows 2000. Please help.
The boot.ini file is a hidden file. Go into the Folder Options applet (via Control Panel or the Tools menu of Windows Explorer or My Computer), select the View tab, then mark the 'Show hidden files and folders' radio button and clear the 'Hide protected operating systems files' checkbox.
