A Google search seems to indicate that it won't work on SP2 after all, as it makes the system unstable.

Specifically: "IF START BUTTON RENAMING DIDN'T WORK WITH SP2:
After countless trial and error attempts to rename the Start button in WindowsXP SP2 using Sarah's hack, I discovered the following:
1. If the new name has less than five characters, you must fill the extra position(s) with spaces in order to have a total of AT LEAST 5 characters. Example: when I tried to change "Start" to "Menu" (4 characters), it didn't work, but when I used " Menu" (note the extra space before the M), it worked.
2. In addition, I discovered that you must rename "Start" in BOTH String Table 37 AND 38, regardless of whether you use the XP or Classic interface. In other words, when I made the change only in 37, it didn't work, but when I changed both 37 and 38, it worked. This is in addition to the info in item 1. above.
Apparently SP1 is not so demanding: with SP1 you can have less than 5 characters for the new name, and need to change EITHER 37 OR 38 depending on which interface you use.
Thought I would pass this along for the benefit of those who have been frustrated in getting this hack to work in SP2."

Haven't tried it myself, so good luck.
