I wouldn't do a 2nd row.  But you can add on to the select in the function fnCreateSelect.  I have a working example here http://jsbin.com/woyem/1/edit. You can either hard code it or generate via your serverside code.  You can also adjust how the data is pulled for the drop down and just use the first 3 letters.

	
			function fnCreateSelect( aData )
			{
				var r='<select><option value=""></option>', i, iLen=aData.length;
				for ( i=0 ; i<iLen ; i++ )
				{
					r += '<option value="'+aData[i]+'">'+aData[i]+'</option>';
				}
// ADD VIA SERVER SIDE CODE or HARD CODE
              r += '<option value="Win">Win</option>'
              r += '<option value="OSX">OSX</option>'
				return r+'</select>';
			}
