Different name from "Volume label"

To present bootable volumes like "Windows XP" where the disk has it is labeled as "DiskC" or what ever, and Ubuntu instead of "Linux".

Guys,

how about a config entry like "Volume Label" in the following format:

"hd(x,y):Alt volname 1" "hd(i,j):Unix powa"

The only drawback using the hd(x,y) scheme is the booter uses the BIOS drive order.
