I had to wipe my hard drive due to a very nasty virus.

I used the XP restore disks and every thing seemed AOK.

When the restore screen came up I answered the questions (time zone, etc)
but it is now hung up at the "What's the Computer Name" screen.

I'm using Emachine T4697 XP Home SP3 (was in) 2.60 Gh Intel P4 Motherboard 1st Int VG33 1.x

Any help appreciated.
