Default Final hurdle, ne-naming Linux boot entry. - 11-24-2010, 06:34 AM

Well I now have a very nice triple boot setup on my 10v.
10.6.5, Win7 and Ubuntu 10.10.
All I would like to do now is change the word Linux in the chameleon boot loader choices screen.
I have labeled the Ubuntu partition using its disk utility (which screwed up the mbr) that made no difference.
I have tried adding to com.apple.Boot.plist

<key>Rename Partition</key>
<string>hd(0,4) Ubuntu</string>

I have also tried using prefpane to change it but as soon as I enter hd(0,4) Ubuntu it disappears.

I know this doesn't really matter but it would just finish the job off.
Any ideas?
