TMan,

- Right click on My Computer on the desktop, choose Manage
- Right click on Computer Management, choose Properties
- on the Network Identification Tab you can enter a description, wich will occur in the Network neighborhood as comment to a computername

On the Network Identification Tab there is displayed computers name, workgroup and buttons "Network ID" (which 'configures' new settings) and "properties", where i can give computer name, select domain/workgroup, and under "more", can set DNS suffix.

But no comment/description !


(and yes i have administrator rights)

I checked it again: the topics you decribe are those you get when you enter Network Identification from the Control Panel/System option. Try accessing it through Computer Management in the MMC, as I described earlier.

If that doensn't work for any reason, start MMC by choosing "Run" and type "MMC". Then choose "Console" and "Add/remove snapin". Then Add Computer Management for the Local Computer. Then right-click on Computer Management...etc. (see above). It works fine here on w2kprof and w2kserver.
