        OK..

        On XP/Server2003 - Right click My Compter > select Properties > Computer Name tab > Click the "Change.." button.

        Enter the new computer name in the pop up dialog.

        On Server2000/Win2000 - Right click My Compter > select Properties > Network Identification tab > Click "Properties..." button.

        Enter the new computer name in the pop up dialog.

        As Windux mentioned, if this is a Domain Controller, you cannot rename it without demoting it first.

        Does that help?

            It means Thanks

            You can rename a domain controller in windows 2003.
            You can not rename a domain controller in windows 2000 or later.

            You can rename every client machine withou problem.
