Hi,

I'm not sure about the exact path for XP Home as I have XP Pro, but this is it for me.

Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Computer Name tab.

I believe the XP Home version doesn't have "Performance and Maintenance" but there is another option at that level that gets you to the "System" option.

Cheers,
Tim.
