Hi - I am running SS 6.5 on my main desktop PC, with the library on the desktop too. How can I access and control SS from my laptop when it is on the same wireless network?

Point the browser on your laptop to the desktop, port 9000.
I do it all the time. Any browser, any laptop, any OS.

So if your desktop is
desk.rbl.com
just use
http://desk.rbl.com:9000/

Great - but this is where i really show my ignorance. How do i find the name of my desktop (i.e. the desk.rbl.com)?

Assuming Windows, Start - Settings - Control Panel - System - Computer Name.

You can do the same thing with the IP address for your desktop. For instance: http://yourIPaddress:9000. You can find the IP address under Server Settings at the bottom.
