    Yes. Open the folder and then tap and hold on the word folder. It will pop up a naming dialog.

    Haven't found a way yet. Probably have to get one of the home programs. Well, once they work anyway.

    When I create the folder it is on the home screen - wallpaper, not the full list of apps. How do I get it to the full list of apps so I can drag apps into the folder?

    I use the app called 'Apps Organize' for this. It allows you to assign apps to different (even multiple) categories / folders and you can change the icons as well. I like it a little bit better than the built in folders.

    It sounds like you want to put a folder into the App Drawer / Launcher (that gets pulled up from the bottom of the screen). It's not possible the the built in Launcher but certain home/launcher replacements have this feature. I've used 'Advanced Launcher' from the Market to do this. I doubt if it's compatible with 2.0 right now. One nice thing about Advanced Launcher is that you could put an app in a folder or on the home screen, and then hide it from the full list of apps.

    Glad you figured it out. For anyone else that needs this info: long press on the home screen, from the 'add to home screen' menu, select Shortcuts, then choose Apps Organizer, then the category/folder.
