Well, it does matter because that's the only way the other machines know 
you're there. They send out a name query for the domain name and if no 
one responds, it's not there. Same with the name of the machine. My 
problem is actually a little different. After setting up the laptop at 
home and bringing it to work, it worked perfectly fine. I just can't get 
any other machine on the network to follow suit.
