the answer lies in smss.exe in your i386\system32 folder, open it in a resource editor, it is somewhere in the message table section, you can also change a lot of the other setup sentences in there

Out of curiosity why are you so reluctant to use a batch script? :blink:

They in general make things easier. B)

Just precreate another boot.ini, kill the old one and replace it, then RASH the puppy with attrib. Why such a bad thing? :huh:
