how to change text on boot menu on a live cd?

I just made a custom live cd from an ubuntu installation with remastersys. Right now when you boot, it says that it is a custom live cd and that it is based on debian. If I take apart the ISO, is there a file I can edit to change what that text is? Thanks.

It might be on a .bmp file in /boot/grub. I suppose you could edit it, or create a new one using The Gimp.

Found it. It was a text file called isolinux.txt located in the isolinux folder.
