    Is there a way OSS could tell you which partition it found containing the OS it detected, when you go into Operating System Properties->Partitions? In my case, I have two distros of Linux installed and it shows the same penguin icon for both, but I don't have a way to know which Linux distro is associated with which icon, unless I boot into each one. Even if the default OS name had the drive/partition (e.g., hdb1), that would help. (Of course I'm hoping OSS will have a way to identify multiple windows versions in a similar manner but at the moment I just have one versions of Windows installed.)

    If you right-click on the menu entry you should be able to rename it to the OS it boots. You can also change the menu name under the General Properties section.

    You might want to also use DD to name the partitions so that you can tell them part. "UbuntuEdgy" or "FeistyFawn", etc.
