computer descriptions

By jmesser ·
when viewing network places or network neighboorhood and seeing all the computers on the network. windows9x clients have a computer description column. NT and win2k have no descriptions in this column. Is there a way to input a computer description for NT or win2k alongside the computer name as with win9x ??

With WinXP users with Admin rights can change the description at the client by right-clicking "My Computer" and using the "Computer Name" tab. For NT or 2000, that option isn't available to end-users. For an NT4 domain, you can run SRVMGR from a command prompt or "Server Manager" from the start menu (under admin. tools). In a 2000 A.D. domain, use the A.D. Users and Computers snap in to change the properties of the machine.
