[SOLVED] Changing system name

Post by Fred60 »

I moved my hard drive from a dell e6400 to a dell M6400. As expected when I look at the system monitor the System tag shows the old system's name. I have looked at all the applications and can't seem to find a way change the name to the current systems name. I'm sure I just missed it, but can someone point my nose at the correct application to make the change?

If that ain't a newbie question, I don't know what is :)
