By delete do you mean going into the whole file system and just highlighting everything and deleting?

I'm dual booting with Win 7 RC but I didn't know that the options stay in your Boot Manager when you get rid of one OS . . . I would try doing a complete format of the drive that the OS was on so it's just empty space. Don't format your only OS though >.>
If you have Vista or Win 7 there's a formatting program in the Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Manager > Disk Management. (Not sure if XP has one >.>) Just format the partitions that don't have your main OS on it and make sure you have all your info backed up. Formating will delete everything from the partition.

edit the boot.ini file that's on the root of the C drive to remove the ones that you can't boot to

There's a way to edit the bootloader through the control panel in Win7, but I can't remember it right now. But EasyBCD rocks, so just use that.
