    try add a line like the following to /etc/hosts
    Code: computername computername.domanname
    where you replace the IP with your IP and the computername and domainname of your computer

    You also have to change the hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network . That is the placement of the file in RHEL3, and RH 9, so I think FC2 put it there too.

    As soon as you can find the IP of your hostname with 'host `hostname`', you should be good.
