Windows 95 and 98 computer name changes

I have 850 Windows 95/98 PC's at over 300 remote locations and I need to change the name on all of them. I have searched for a command line solution with no luck. Anyone out there know how to do this by command line or with a script?
Also have another 400 W2K+ to do...ideas there would be much appreciated as well!
These are all in workgroups not domains.

Are you wanting to change every PC to the same computer name? If so why would you do that?

No, every computer will have a unique name. They now have similiar names in each location.

From what I read netdom is for domain connected computers and works on NT and above. I did try to run it and it cannot find the required files to run.

sirbounty,
after reading through this link again I found the reference to compname.exe which does the job like a charm!
Thanks so much!!
