I think you have to edit the schema. I wanted to show the notes information (found under telephone tab) in AD, but did a bit of research and found that you have to edit the schema. I thought, buggar that.

Alternatively why not create sub OUs and move your computer objects into the relevant OU?

Could you not just pop it in the description? I know its a work arround but its a lot easier than messing with the schema!!

Thats what I do, each room has its own OU, it means you can change computers round easily and apply different policies to different rooms.
