I'm (sadly) giving my iBook away and want to rename the computer from "Tom Carnaghan's Computer" to someone elses. The username and account settings I understandn but cannot get my head round this! Can it be done without a complete reinstall (which I don't want to do!)
Any help would be much appreciated as a long trawl around the net has uncovered nothing!

Simply change the computer name in the "Sharing" pane of the System Preferences.

If you're just giving the iBook away to someone who doesn't need the iBook setup for them, I would recommend using the Mac OS X Install CD that came with the iBook and either erasing the hard drive or reinstalling a fresh copy of Mac OS X so that your information isn't on there anymore.
