Okay, no one else has responded so I'll just ask, what are you trying to do exactly? Use your mac on a Windows network?

on a windows/Unix network.

All the Macs say they belong to "workgroup" and the "internet" dialog does not allow for a group change.

Any ideas? This forum rarely answers these kinds of questions. Thanks for any help.

I will check when I get home, but it is probably something you set in the Net Info utility... You could try a place like MacDevCenter.com for hints or a Windows/Mac site...

Check this link or if this doesn't do it, try one of the groups there or sending in a question:

Hey, Mark-

Thought I'd share this one out, since none of the questions I've made through the years in this forum have ever been answered to any kind of satisfaction, which could simply mean that as a guy who uses regularly three or four different OS's I ask weird stuff from the "apple only" point of view.

Then again, it could be my karma.

Anyway, here's how: under Applications/Utilities there is an application called "Directory Access". Inside you will find the settings for SMB/CIFS. SMB is the subnet's domain/workgroup. Unlock, doubleclick, type new name, accept, save, "apply".

Take care and thanks for trying and the moral support.

.k.

Um, yeah, isn't that what the link I posted said to do?
