Don't like to have to use a program to do what the command line can do and I hate installing programs just for something that is this simple.

Good post Chuckr

Great easy peasy command ChuckR. thanks but the only thing I like to add is only type XP Professional in Boot.ini if you actually wish for your multi boot menu name to be shown as XP Professional in Boot.ini, otherwise simply type in between the quotation marks "XP Professional" end of or else your multi menu name will be XP Professional in Boot.ini. Thanks again ChuckR.
