Friendly Windows XP Browstat TCP/IP Transport Name?

I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out how I can set a "friendly name" for the TCP/IP transport that is reported by the browstat.exe utility when using the "status" switch in Windows XP.  I've seen examples of how someone was able to change the Windows XP TCP/IP Adapter ID from a long string that starts with "{8038F452- ... }" to a much friendlier name like "Server01."  How is this done?  I'd like to change my Adapter ID to something like "PC-1" so that I would be able to use "PC-1" instead of "{8038F452- ... }" when I wanted to do something like force a browser election.

I need to be able to do this for Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, and Windows 7 Professional PCs.
