Create a batch file:
WINNT /B /S:\\test\i386 /U:\\test\i386\unattend.txt /UDF:%1,test.udb


[UniqueIDs]
PC-01= UserData
PC-02= UserData


[PC-01:UserData]
ComputerName = PC-01

[PC-02:UserData]
ComputerName = PC-02

So in a nutshell %1 of your batch expects an argument. Which is the ComputerName. So you only have to start the install with %1 the batch expects a following argument. Which is the PC-Name.
So you can start the installation with the following Command:
start pc-01 or
start pc-02
