Device Icon Changing

Hi all, first post so hope I'm in the right place....

I'm looking to try and change the icons shown for each device on my network. I've managed to change the device icons for each machine but not so when I veiw my network each of them has something representative of the machine. I've attached a mocked up screen shot of what I want to acheive. Any one got any idea how to do this or if it's even possible?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for this Golden but I don't seem to be able to get it to work for changing the Network screen.

I opted to inset a key for LAPTOP-DOMINIC instead of a regular drive letter. Is that the right thing to do? My machines aren't mapped as drives, just network locations.
