ok..i have no freaking clue what im doing here! very basic knowledge of ALL this computer stuff! my question is, is it possible to change the name of my imac? i guess when i got it up and going, somehow it got named after me! so im assuming the would be my network name when i go wireless? which would end up being my whole name! it says, "computers on your local network can access your computer at: john-a-doe-imac.local" (my name instead of john doe). thanks for any help!

This is not Windows - there is no registry.
