Default Newbie - Network problems

When i boot up i get the message '!! windows system eror - a duplicate name
exists on the network!!'

Tried to set up a small network but got a bit lost and presume this has come
from there...How can i delete this message, cancel all the networks 'things'
that i've done and start from fresh....Tia

Hi, pcs on the same network must have different names, but be in the
same work group

im assuming you have xp if not it will be something simlilar to :

right click my computer properties Computer name
In the computer description box ensure this is different for all pcs
on the network and all should be fine.

Computer name click 'change' and change the computer name box.


Sorry
