Install VMWare Workstation on your computer. Create a new virtual machine. Install Windows.(Remember to use the computername you need) Problem solved (I hope)
Little bit more work but worth the effort.
Open the Hosts file in notepad. Add a line which says:
I Hope this works for you.
You can add more lines as above to link your ip address to multiple names.
If your server is running linux with Samba, you could redirect SharedFolder to another server by setting the "msdfs proxy" parameter to another share (on another computer) in your config.
If it's Windows I can't help you with your configuration, search for MSDFS (MicroSoft Distributed File System).
