How to change the kernel title in /boot/grub/menu.lst?

installed linux-source-2.6.26 in /usr/src, modified some configurations,  and used make-kpkg command to generate a kernel deb file.

On installing the kernel on my local machine, I found that the kernel was entered as title        Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26 (single-user mode) in /boot/grub/menu.lst

I installed this kernel image on my live cd, and then installed it to my hdd.

Inspite of me making modifications to the kernel, its still showing title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26 (single-user mode) in the grub bootup.

Then I installed the same very linux image deb file in Ubuntu 8.10, and even there the kernel was listed as that of Ubuntu..!!!

How do I change this title to that of my own?

How to customize the kernel title in /boot/grub/menu.lst automatically without user interven?

Its a fair thing that if i customize a kernel according to my need, I should be able to use a name for it too..!!

Any idea of how to do this??

Linux indiaforce 2.6.26 #1 SMP Thu Oct 1 09:03:37 IST 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Now how to enable indiaforce ie hostname to appear in kernel name?

Please help.
