Simple question: changing computer name - Mac Networking

Is changing the computer name any more complicated than simply opening the Sharing preferences panel and changing it there? Ditto for the Rendezvous name? I checked Apple's KB and the online Help and they both indicated that one can simply change the name with no negative consequences. If that's all there is to it, I'll be delighted. Thx. -- +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ robert b. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++...
