Cannot migrate from Windows 2000 to Windows XP

I was able to run the desktopdna.exe and CREATE a profile (or whatever)
as per the docs.

The docs have you write the file as the "workstation" name.

But when I try to apply that to the new XP PC, it won't work because the
workstation names aren't the same.

So is there not a way to migrate from Win2K to XP unless you keep the
workstation names the same? (our workstation names are never the same
when re-imaging, etc. due to issues with AD as we don't give our
helpdesk the ability to go into AD and delete the existing computer

Or do I not follow the docs and just have it "write" the file with just
a userid or some other method (in which case they'd probably end up
whacking the wrong machine if they have multiple machines).
