Some Firefox addons as customize menu bar ( for example, Compact Menu 2 ),

do “Ubuntu Firefox Modifications” off.

Then you can apply menu customize to Firefox.

Use “Universal extractor”.

Decompress “.exe” with “Wise Installer /x switch” option.

Rename %EXENAME% to EXENAME.zip, and decompress the file.

You can get skins at ThemeXP.org, etc.

But Uxtheme Multi-Patcher 5.5 can’t adopt to XP SP3.

PatchXP SP2 can patch to uxtheme.dll of SP3.

Boot with recovery-mode

#init 1

#mount -o remount -rn /

#df

check your boot device, as /dev/sda1

#tune2fs -c 1024 /dev/ sda1

sda1 is an example.

#tune2fs -i 0 /dev/sda1

0 = zero

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

## timeout sec
# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
# (normally the first entry defined).
timeout 3

Change timeout option if you boot immediately.

## ## End Default Options ##

From here, boot menus are written.

Generally Ubuntu descriptions wrote first, and Windows (or MacOSX) second.

If you have dual-boot environment and want to boot Windows automatically,

replace description with another.

Then you can “sudo update-grub”.
