Network Computer Name Display - XP

By s.trudo ·
We'll be migrating from NT/W2K to XP next fiscal year. We've discovered that the network computer name is displayed differently in XP than in NT/W2K and would like to have it displayed the same. For example, the information in NT/W2K looks like:

CRFD89\SusanT

In XP, it looks like:
SusanT on CRFD89

We sort our lists by the computer name for ease in attaching to the computer. Does anyone know of a setting we can change to force XP to display the computer name before the description of the computer?

I did this on my XP box a few months ago during my first setups of XP, but I don't remember what I did.
I "think" that in TweakUI you can set this, but I am not sure for certain.
Get TweakUI and check.

Didn't see it in TweakUI yet, but will do some digging. Thanks!
