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.

You have two methode

1) Use the net config server /srvcomment:"Bob's travel machine" (Require administrator rights)

2) Edit or add the value in registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\srvcomment.
