you can also reference the machine by IP address if needed

Thanks for the help.  Randy Carver got me to a solution.  I had assumed
that Remote Cows wanted a UNC name for the remote machine (e.g.
\\cracker)
when it actually just wanted a bare machine name (e.g. cracker).  The
funny
thing was that the UNC name would work enough to register the service
with
the remote machine's service control manager, but it could not copy
files
and such.  So, it just kinda worked half-way and that threw me off.
