[erlang-questions] Can't set long node name on windows

Reading Joe Armstrong's book and trying all the examples :)

Anyway, in the "Distributed Programming" chapter I'm trying to run one
node on a Linux box and another one on a Windows box.

Unfortunately, trying to invoke erl like this:

    erl -name bilbo -setcookie abc

results in "Can't set long node name. Please check your configuration"

Both machines run on DHCP. And yes, I know, Windows sucks :) But I need
it :(
