You can specify

to load yourname with ntoskrnl.exe present or with ntkrnlpa present. In both cases you need at least one native kernel to be present. Nt loader checks to see that you have at least one. To, say load w2k kernel with ntkrnlpa and to be sure it is w2k kernel, that is at work, specify /KERNEL=yourname.exe in the beginning of the string AND /nopae closer to the end - this comand FORCES nt to start with either ntoskrnl.exe or with alternative one. If you retain ntoskernl.exe and delete ntkrnlpa, then use /kernel=yourname.exe, but at any time ONE NATIVE should be present, thus any time with alternative kernel there are TWO kernel a native one and alt. one, But to use and load in memory ONLY ONE kernel, use your native ntoskernel.exe from xp. This way, though it's bigger you assure the best memory-cpu interaction and absence of the secondary kernel in memory. It seems to me it sounds more robust, vivid but without harshness, while with w2k and ntoskernel(native) together the sound is smmother but slightly dull.
P.S. Hope it's not confusing.
