    Hi all,

    When viewing a workgroup in XP, it has this annoying way of displaying the computers under the Name column: (the comments column only displays the computer description)

    computer_description (computer_name)

    which makes it impossible to sort the list based on computer name.

    According to microsoft kb article 330193, this is a known issue that was addressed in SP2. My machine came with SP2 but I still have the problem.

    any ideas???
