Why would you want to do that - that's how Dell identifies a specific machine and how it was configured.

Yes, it can be done.  One perfectly legitimate use is when a motherboard is changed under warranty, you want the new mobo bios to contain the Tag of the actual box that it's in.  There's a small utility to do it that Dell engineers use.
