change computer name for windows 95/98se/2000 Pro

I know you can change computer name in XP under 'system properties - computer name - change' but how do you do it under other operating systems? Reason is that work is using id no.s on machines and when we use audit software on the pc's we want the work id no. to tie up to that computer name ie work id 01 would but computer name 01.

Hope this makes sense

If you know the computer name you can open REGEDIT and look in find for the name and change it
