    Hello and Welcome!

    You should be able to edit your /etc/hosts file and /etc/sysconfig/network to achieve that.

    Then you'll have to re-install. But I don't really understand why you would want to do that, as either way will give your computer whatever name you choose. Maybe I don't understand your question properly?

    Jay, he is trying to change the name of the distro / logo that is visible during the installation.
    That requires altering the anaconda package

    For something like this, you could ask the CentOS devs. They obviously remove the RHEL branding when they build CentOS, so they must have scripts that can do this for you.

    Then I did mis-understand the question. Sorry about that!
