    I would like to change the computer's name in osx. I'm not even sure if that is what you call it. When you open a new window in finder (apple-n) it is the name assigned when the setup assistant first ran. Where can I change this? Can anybody help?

    I'm at work at the moment, so I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's in System Prefs > Sharing. Take a look.

    Also look in Preferences->Network. Your computer name (i.e. hostname) is set here, but the name you see if you connect from a Window machine or via AFS is set in Preferences->Sharing (iirc - I am also at work)

    Thanks for the help
