Mac Identifier 2.2 is a System Control Panel that puts back the model name and icon identification lost in the "About This Computer" ("About This Macintosh" under Mac OS 7.5) window under Mac OS versions 7.5 and later. It also brings back the model name to the flagship naming service on AppleTalk networks, allowing network administrators to know which Macintosh is which on their network.

Excerpt: from included documentation.

Mac Identifier 2.2 also changes the Gestalt ID of a Macintosh to another's of your choosing. This can be useful in situations for example, where you want to install certain software (such as a System Software installer) which may not have an installer that will allow an installation to go ahead because it detects an incorrect Macintosh model. Mac Identifier 2.2 fools that installer into thinking the Macintosh you are running is the correct model and the installation proceeds. Or maybe you're simply tired of the two model options that SheepShaver offers. Knock yourself out. YMMV.
