Not the name of the Hard Drive, The Name Of the Computer!!

You know when it says "Mark's Computer" in the log in screen.

Think you change the computer name by going to
System Preferences-> Sharing:
and change it there.

The hat is yours, the hat is yours,
Hat-baby, hat-baby!

Tim is correct for sharing, but if you want to change the Admin name it’s more difficult. In fact, the only way I know to change it is to reinstall OS X. I’m sure somebody has a UNIX work around for that, but reinstalling maybe the way to go.

Tony!
