Default Want to Remove XP version from Desktop

I have some great desktop wallpaper and don't really want the following plastered in the lower right corner "Windows XP Home Edition Build 2600.xpsp1.020828-1920 (Service Pack 1)" Thats just a little more info than I need on my desktop. Any ideas how to edit the registry to remove this or a freeware or shareware program that does it for you. I have Winboost2001 and it will remove the WinME information from the desktop but won't work for XP. I searched thru the power toys for XP also and found nothing. Any idea appreciated.
Thanks, Bob

An aside. Installed SP1 for XP, other than a 2hours download via my broadband, who knows why, all is up and running very well, no bugs found yet!
