ChangeName recomeded by PalmOne for changing your UserName
With ChangeName you can set/change the PalmOS UserName (the HotSyncName) and the UserID directly on your PalmOS device. You can
also fake the FlashRomSerialNumber and the OS Version (string). Normally you set/change the UserName with the
PalmDesktop (Win/Mac) or install-user (Un*x/Linux). ChangeName also includes a program for MS Windows to show
all user in the PalmDesktop user database (users.dat) and it allows to change a user name on the desktop.
