It's a little more complicated than that. The file system is named "My Computer" if you did NOT rename the optional "My Computer" icon on your Windows desktop. In user_string_windows.cpp there's a routine that looks in various places in the Windows Registry for that name, and uses it (or is supposed to use it) on the BasiliskII or SheepShaver desktop.
So if your "computer" icon on your Windows desktop is named "Christiaan Huygens" or "Lady Gaga", that is (or should be) the name of the external file system in BII or SS.
I figured this out when I was putting together my Mac OS 9 for Windows system. I couldn't figure out how to write an AppleScript in OS 9 that would recognize the name of the external file system. So the AutoIt launcher that I wrote for the system gets the name from the Registry and puts it in the Windows clipboard; when SheepShaver launches, a startup script retrieves the name from the clipboard and uses it to build an alias used by the file-transfer system that I create in OS 9.
It took me a while to sort this out. Someone who knows what they're doing could have done it in two minutes.
