Changing a Computer description

I need to change the description of a computer because it is now with a new user.  The computer name is stayingthe same.  I know where to do so in XP, but i can't seem to find it in 2000 Pro or do you change it somewhere else?

For example:

Computer Name:  laptop
Description:  Bob's travel machine

This way other users on the domain can see who's computer it is.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
