When you dual-boot, you see 2 operating systems there, can you change the text of what the say?

Example: "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" to something like "Muck about OS"

Yes, you will need to open up c:\boot.ini with notepad/wordpad and change the o/s name

here's mine, only XP installed, yours will have more to it..
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
