    I believe it's just a text string so it really doesn't matter. You could call it Mickey Mouse if you wanted.
    err, i think you are wrong...and I was right

    I changed it to Mandrake 9.1, and I got an error, something about the name containing blank characters.

    Oh well, I just reedited the file.

    From personal experience, I can tell you that grub doesn't care about blank spaces. But obviously lilo does. Instead of "Mandrake 9.1", why not try "Mandrake_9.1"? (underscore instead of space).

    hey, thx man! I did that, looks much better than Mandrake or WindowsXP...hehe.

    YEA, Mandrake should use GRUB as default bootloader like Red hat, much easier to configure.
