Summary: grub: menu.lst for windows: use version name e.g.
Windows XP Home
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: All
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement

YAST installation sets the grub menu.lst entry for windows to 'windows'. I
would like this to be improved so that YAST takes a look at the drive to
determine what version of windows is running and improves the name of the
entry. As a minimum it would be good to differentiate between XP and Vista.
Better still would be catch 'Windows 2000', 'Windows XP Home', 'Windows XP
Professional', 'Windows Vista Home Basic', 'Windows Vista Business', 'Windows
Ultimate' etc.
