Forgive me if this is silly, but...

In *MY* setup, F1 points to a teeny tiny partition that Windows XP Home
Edition created with, err, looks like some kind of boot-strapping stuff in

And *F2* is what gets me into Windows.

F3 is also some Windows tiny partition.

F4 is FreeBSD

Speaking of which...

Where exactly are the text strings for F1, F2, F3, F4 stored?

Now that I know what's what, it's no big deal, but the anal/retentive part
of me wants to label F2 suitably.

Like Music?
