Renaming a registry key is not possible from IS. I recommend using RegDBCopyKey to copy the key to it's new name,  then remove the old key.
RegDBCopyKey  can be found here on installsite under "IS 5/6 Samples > Registry and Ini Files".

If you do not wish to use this method, then what you want to accomplish can not be done as far as I know.
