    domainname setting

    Hey. Using mandrake 10.0.

    I'm trying to setup an NIS master server. I can't set the domainname for some reason, so that means I can't setup the NIS master server also...

    I've checked out lots of files, but I can't find where to set the domainname so that when my computer boots, it will have it's domainname.

    Would another distribution just be easier to work with, with NIS?

    I think that gentoo is a better distro, but no worries, for the domain name, just type
    echo networkname > /etc/dnsdomainname
