Network identification

Briefly, I have DSL with a Dynamic IP via an ATM/DSL Router.

I also use DNS2GO client to have a nameserver for whatever my IP address is.

I was wondering if anyone knew if i can enter that information into WINDOWS Network identifcation... ie. join that domain.

So that as soon as my PC is booted up and running, it has a name on the internet, i.e., my-friggen-pc.com instead of just an IP.

Or I guess I should ask what the "Network Name" tab is (under "System Properties")

aaahhh... ok...

and since i disabled NetBIOS and don't have a local network, it's pretty much useless....

so how do i identify my PC on the net?

i guess i have to shell out $$ for a static IP and ask my ISP if they can set up a nameserver for me... fat chance of that hapening...

guess i'll stick with DNS2Go for now...

thanks.
