In Windows Explorer, 'Network Drives' section, the Samba share I've set
up is described as:

share on 'Samba 3.0.14a-0.4-SUSE (Our_server_IP_Address)' (K:)

Is there any way of configuring Samba to display something other than
"Samba 3.0.14a-0.4-SUSE (Our_server_IP_Address)" as the Network Drive
description, for example:

share on 'Our Samba Server' (K:)
I've had a look through man smb.conf but cannot find anything.
