i'm not sure what you mean by this.  the default page is "Main Page";
"Wikipedia" shouldn't occur in any parts of the software (although it
probably does in some stale language files).  could you be more specific
about what you want to change?

this depends on whether you are using 1.3 or 1.4.  in both versions, you can
do this by editing the HTML template file (xhtml_slim.pt in 1.3, or
MonoBook.php in 1.4).  in 1.4, you can use the easier configuration method
described at
