Hi there, many thanks for your reply. I have pulled one of the epub books apart and found the following in the guide section:

<guide>
<reference type="cover" title="cover" href="cover.xhtml" />
<reference type="title-page" title="title" href="title.xhtml" />
<reference type="preface" title="annotation" href="annotation.xhtml" />
<reference type="title-page" title="bookcontent1_0" href="section1.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent2_0" href="section2.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent3_0" href="section3.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent4_0" href="section4.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent5_0" href="section5.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent6_0" href="section6.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent7_0" href="section7.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent8_0" href="section8.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent9_0" href="section9.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent10_0" href="section10.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent11_0" href="section11.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent12_0" href="section12.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent13_0" href="section13.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent14_0" href="section14.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent15_0" href="section15.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent16_0" href="section16.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent17_0" href="section17.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent18_0" href="section18.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent19_0" href="section19.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent20_0" href="section20.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent21_0" href="section21.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent22_0" href="section22.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent23_0" href="section23.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent24_0" href="section24.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent25_0" href="section25.xhtml" />
<reference type="notes" title="bookcontent26_0" href="fb2info.xhtml" />
<reference type="copyright-page" title="about" href="about.xhtml" />
</guide>

I changed this to:

<guide>
<reference type="cover" title="cover" href="cover.xhtml" />
<reference type="title-page" title="title" href="title.xhtml" />
<reference type="preface" title="annotation" href="annotation.xhtml" />
<reference type="title-page" title="bookcontent1_0" href="section1.xhtml" />
<reference type="text" title="bookcontent2_0" href="section2.xhtml" />
<reference type="notes" title="bookcontent26_0" href="fb2info.xhtml" />
<reference type="copyright-page" title="about" href="about.xhtml" />
</guide>

And now the start point is 'section2.xhtml'.

Is there anyway I edit the Contents.opf file in Calibre (so I can strip all but the first type="text" entry?
