Yes, but why bother with it when the other tool is so much better IMO. You
can edit the menu and other parameters from it's prompt. There is a 
graphics file called splash.xpm.gz which dumps graphics on the screen. My 
guess is that it could be replaced with some kind of sound file and 
redirected to other ports for visualy impaired.
