    If you mean the network hostname, you can just use the 'hostname' command. I'm sure Knoppix has it in a config file somewhere too - possibly /etc/sysconfig/network... You can manually set the hostname using the following on the command line or via a shell script:
    hostname my.hostname.tld

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.
