I have been trying to fix this for months.. I have changed the Computer Name under the sharing area, however, the old name still shows up on the log on screen!!! AAARRRGHH Did the previous owner of this G4 change a system variable somewhere, somehow to forever display his name on the logon screen instead of the computer name???
