    Boot Menu


    How do I change what the OS on the boot menu are called? If I can't, how do I put spaces in their names? I can't put spaces in their names. I want Windows XP but can only write WindowsXP.

    What bootloader do you use?

    GNUB 0.9 or something. It might be GRUB 0.9. I'm not sure.

    You can edit the file /boot/grub/grub.conf In that file, you will see, for each OS that GRUB boots to, a line starting with "title". Edit that any way you like. Don't change anything else until you understand how GRUB works:
    Code:
    title  Windows XP, Service Pack 72.8
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        makeactive
        chainloader +1
        boot
    You've either got to be a superuser or else log in as root to make the change.
