    I have a quick quistion, dont know if this is possible, but this is something that struck me as i was going throught all these forums and finnaly getting fine tuned with dual boot systems.

    I would like to know if it is possible to make maultiple Windows XP boot systems to where oyu have different setting on each boot system that you have, i just kinda did a little test onight and discovered that there was a slight change by copying my

    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /TUTag=2K9EBE /Kernel=TUKernel.exe

    and renaming it, aswell as copying the TUKernel.exe and renaming it and making it look like this

    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="The Creator's OS" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /TUTag=2K9EBE /Kernel=THECREATOR.exe

    The thing is that when i boot up i see both these boots but the problem is, is when i make changes to the one, for instance just moving around the desktop icons then restatring my system then booting to the other boot instance it has changed my desktop icons there aswell, but i have custom boot skins annd all that and it changed those back to default on the newly created boot instance that i had just copied and booted to after making the desktop changes.

    I guess where iam going with this question is hoe can i go aboout making multiple XP boot systems but having totalle different setting on each boot instance without having to create different partitions and installing windows 6 times if i want 6 different boot instances, there has to be a sipler way.!!!

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
